Woman Rescued After Driving Car Into Pere Marquette River

A woman was taken to the hospital after her car ended up upside down in the Pere Marquette River.

It happened just off of 56th Street in Lake County’s Lake Township.

The Lake County sheriff says they got a call around noon Thursday after a passerby noticed the car in the river.

The sheriff says because of the water’s temperature, crews had to pull the car from the river before rescuing the woman inside.

The woman was taken to the hospital, and her condition is unknown.

Deputies are still on scene investigating how the car ended up in the river.
