SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY-

San Joaquin County Sheriff’s deputies say the bodies of three men were pulled from the Delta Sunday night and Monday, all reportedly connected to an SUV that crashed into the water over the weekend.

Dispatchers got a call at about 5 a.m. from someone saying that they had crashed their car into the water along Bacon Island Road but had escaped unharmed, but was concerned about five fellow passengers. The caller did not leave a name.

Sheriff’s investigators suspended their search Monday afternoon because conditions in the water weren’t conducive for investigation.

Crews believe between two and four more bodies could be in the water, all possibly connected to the eight-seat SUV.

The SUV was not reported stolen.
