Search for fourth victim in Mississippi River SUV crash continues

A dive and rescue crew is continuing to drill through ice in the Mississippi River as they continue their search for 29-year-old La Crosse, Wisconsin resident Andrew Kingsbury, who was the fourth person riding in an SUV that died when the vehicle plunged into the river due to a crash that occurred on Sunday, January 5 at around 1:20 a.m.

The dive and rescue team from Iowa is currently working alongside Winona County, Minnesota police. Cadaver dogs have also been added to the search. Search teams have been primarily using underwater cameras, sonar, and robots to look for Kingsbury’s body.

According to the police, the driver, identified as 36-year-old Winona resident Christina Hauser, missed the turn towards Riverview Drive, causing the vehicle to crash into the Mississippi River.

Her body, along with that of 30-year-old passenger Matthew Erickson, was recovered on the day of the accident. Twenty-eight-year-old Stewartville, Minnesota resident Blake Overland’s body was found the following day.

Losing so many people in an accident is devastating, and our team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® sends their sincere condolences to the family and friends of those who lost their lives in this accident.
