Iosco County Crash Victim Found Frozen In River 12-14-2010

The recent rash of severe weather is being blamed for the death of an 80-year-old woman in Iosco County.
Oscoda Township police said the body of Eleanor Rickards was found dead and frozen into the ice next to her crashed vehicle near the Hull Island bridge, just west of US 23.
Police said the woman’s car likely veered off the roadway early Sunday evening when heavy, drifting snow was at its strongest.
The crash wasn't reported until Monday because the vehicle was partially submerged in the water and obscured by snow and brush, police said.
Police said their investigation shows Rickards fell when she attempted to climb the embankment.
