body of a man was recovered from the Providence River in East Providence after a pickup truck was pulled out of the water.
Witnesses reported seeing the truck submerged in the river early Thursday morning, prompting marine units from the police, fire, and state police to search for it using sonar technology.
After several hours of searching, divers located the vehicle and confirmed that there was one victim inside.
Fire officials have not released any information about the circumstances surrounding the incident.
The recovery operation caused traffic delays in the area, but the road has since been reopened.
