While the south pond at Manners Park continues to drain slowly, the Taylorville Park District got the shock of their life Friday morning when they found a car. The car looked to be from the late 1970s but had an 80’s sticker on the license plate. The Taylorville Police Department are working on running the license plate to see if they can find out anything about the license plate or the vehicle itself. The Taylorville Fire Department busted the back window of the car in an effort to pull some of the mud and debris out of it and to look for anything that may remain inside. While there was nothing found in the back seat or the passenger seat, there is still too much mud left in the driver's side to see if anyone was in the driver's seat, so the Fire Department and Police Department have to wait for the water levels to go down a little further. Sources within the Fire Department told Regional Radio News, they don’t believe there is anyone in the car but it is still too early to tell. The next part of the process is to figure out how to get the car out of the pond. Stay tuned to Regional Radio News for more updates.
