IRVING -- A deceased man was found in an overturned SUV in the Elm Fork of the Trinity River Wednesday morning, according to the Farmers Branch police.

A passerby called police around 9 a.m. Wednesday to report the vehicle off of the LBJ Freeway near Luna Rd.

There was no indication of a crash in the area, and investigators are still looking into the circumstances that led to the SUV going into the water. It is also unclear what time the vehicle went into the water.

The deceased man was a white male, but authorities have not released his identity. A dog was also in the SUV, but it escaped and swam to shore.
