Submerged car near Courtney Campbell naturally transformed into artificial reef

- A boater made an interesting discovery near the Courtney Campbell Causeway. 

The boater spotted a submerged vehicle on a depth finder, and contacted Tampa police. Divers with the agency recovered a vehicle that has been underwater for so long that it turned into an artificial reef.

It was covered with barnacles. There were many inside and out that it was difficult to tell what kind of car it was.

The car was removed on Wednesday.
