Two bodies were pulled yesterday from a car that plunged into the Mississippi River on the Minnesota side at Winona. One victim is identified as 36-year-old Christina Hauser of Winona. The name of the other person, a 30-year-old man, was not immediately released.
Winona County sheriff’s deputies were told about car tracks heading toward the river about 7:30 yesterday morning. Sheriff Dave Brand said an underwater camera spotted the vehicle, and it was pulled from the water around noon.
Both victims were wearing seat belts. Autopsies were planned, as deputies continue to investigate the incident.
