The 4WD car containing a man’s body found on Saturday (January 19) may have crashed into the river two or three days earlier, police say.

About 7am, a member of the public noticed the vehicle submerged in the river off Rogan’s Bridge at Seelands, near Grafton.

Emergency services were contacted and the body of a 43-year-old man was extricated from the vehicle.

Investigations suggest the Toyota Landcruiser was travelling north over Rogan’s Bridge, when for unknown reasons it left the road and entered the water.

It is believed the incident occurred on January 16 or 17.

Officers from Coffs/Clarence Police District are investigating the circumstances of the crash and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
