Fatal River Crash



Three months after a vehicle crashed into the Mississippi River at the foot of Huff Street and claimed four lives local authorities are ready to release more information on an investigation.

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says he and County Attorney Karin Sonneman will release more details next Monday morning at the Law Enforcement Center.

The crash occurred on January 5th, when a vehicle went off Huff Street at Riverview Drive missing a turn and killing all four occupants who drowned. Three of the bodies were recovered quickly but authorities spent two weeks searching the river before the fourth body was located.

Since then no other information has been released.  

New information may include whether any criminal charges may be filed,  the speed of the vehicle and a reconstruction of the accident scene.

All four occupants had been seen at a downtown Winona bar the evening before the crash was discovered.....
