DAVIE, Fla. – Part of State Road 7 was shut down Wednesday afternoon in Davie as crews worked to remove a vehicle from a canal.

Davie police said one northbound lane was closed on SR-7 to go onto the west onramp of State Road 84.

Police said the vehicle was found using sonar equipment during a training exercise.

Authorities are unsure how long the vehicle has been in the water, but said it is very rusted and is coming out piece by piece.
