Woman Dies In Submerged Vehicle

KSAL StaffJuly 22, 2015

A Missouri woman is dead after her vehicle slid sideways into a Kansas lake and became submerged, trapping her inside.

The Crawford County, Kansas, Sheriff’s Office says 52-year-old Venice Ann Little of Mindenmines, Missouri, was found dead inside the cab of her submerged GMC Sonoma pickup truck on Tuesday.  An initial investigation determined Little drove too close to a bank near the lake in Mulberry City Park and her vehicle lost traction in the wet grass and mud.

Two other occupants, 47-year-old Sherri West of LaCygne, Kansas, and 33-year-old Mandi Umphenour of Mulberry, Kansas, were able to escape the sinking vehicle. They were unable to get Little out.

An autopsy will be performed to determine her cause of death, which appears to be drowning.
