    Two dead, four missing after SUV plunges into Ohio river

    This is a strange story:

    Police found the bodies of two women Sunday inside a sport utility vehicle that had plunged into the Ohio River, and were searching for four men a survivor said also were in the SUV.

    A woman who managed to swim to shore told police she was riding in the vehicle when her friend drove down a boat ramp into the water around 2:30 a.m.

    Jamie Rakestrew, 26, said she and her friends met the men at a bar and were giving them a ride, but she did not know their names, officials said. "This is one of the most unusual situations I've witnessed in 36 years of law enforcement in that we have four missing people and we don't really know who they are," Henderson Police Chief Ed Brady said.

    Surely they must know who owned the SUV

    It is strange

    The news said tonight that they know who the men are - still haven't found them, the weather has been bad, lots of wind and choppy river. Weird stuff seems to happen here.

    Why did she drive down a boat ramp? Had the driver been drinking?

    It seems one of the girls owned and was driving the SUV.
    Life ain't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride.

    From what I have read they were not familiar with the area and were leaving the bar/club and started driving right down the boat ramp instead of driving out of the correct exit.
