Jeep Cherokee vs Chippewa River

Sun Photographs by RYAN EVON


A woman driving east on Pickard Road west of Littlefield Road lost control of her vehicle and ended up in the Chippewa River at 9:30 a.m. this morning.

The Fremont Township Rescue and Dive Team and Deerfield Fire Department were on the scene. When the dive team arrived the woman was still trapped in the backseat of her vehicle. Rescue diver Dan Wiles pulled the woman from her vehicle. She was not injured in the accident. After her vehicle went into the river, the strong current carried it nearly 200 feet downriver.

“She was scared, cold and wet,” Wiles said as he stood beside the river in his dive suit.
