Both the missing occupant's body and the vehicle have been retrieved several hours after a speeding car fell into the Mahaweli River at Ilukmodera on Kandy-Gurudeniya road this morning (28), police say.
The deceased has been identified as a 39-old resident of Gurudeniya.
Two occupants of the vehicle, including the driver, were rushed to Kandy National Hospital after being rescued soon after it had gone out of control and fallen into the river.
A combined police and Navy search had begun for another and the submerged car.
