TACOMA — Three-dozen scrap cars that fell off a barge Feb. 24 and into Tacoma's Commencement Bay have been recovered.
The News Tribune reports Global Dive and Salvage removed the cars last week.
The crushed cars fell into 240-feet-deep water when an Amix Marine Services barge sprang a leak and tilted.
The state Ecology Department said the scrapped cars had to be removed from the state-owned aquatic land.
The barge was taking cars from Vancouver, B.C., to the Schnitzer Steel recycling yard in Tacoma.
