EARLIER:

THERE are fears a man has drowned after driving a car into the Brisbane River at the Goodna Boat Ramp on Saturday morning.

At 7.40am a male was seen by witnesses driving a vehicle down the boat ramp at speed.

The vehicle is now fully submerged and police divers are on their way to retrieve a possible body and the vehicle.

Police don't have a registration for the vehicle, so do not know at this stage who may have been driving the vehicle.

The boat ramp is currently closed.
