No One Wants to Remove Truck from River

SLOAN, Iowa (AP) -- Three months after a truck splashed into the Missouri River during a police chase, no one wants to pay the cost of removing the sunken vehicle.
   The situation is frustrating for riverfront landowner who has to keep looking at the truck that's covered by about a foot of water near Sloan, Iowa.
   Usually when vehicles wind up in the river, the owner or his insurance company pays the $6,000-to-$8,000 bill to retrieve it. But in this case, the truck's owner, who was fleeing police at speeds over 70 mph, is either unable or unwilling to pay the bill.
   Land owner Don Dixon says he's tried contacting every agency he can think of for help, but hasn't had any luck.
