Woodstock RCMP are investigating after a car plunged into the Meduxnekeag River last week.

Police were called to the scene on Bell Settlement Road in Red Bridge on Friday just before 4:30 in the morning. When they arrived, the vehicle was completely underwater.

Two women in the car were able to get out safely. A 20-year-old woman from Woodstock was arrested at the scene though she was released pending a future court appearance.

Alcohol is believed to have been a factor.
