Shenandoah Fire and Rescue helped a 77-year-old woman escape from a vehicle that had slid into a pond and partically submerged on Jan. 30.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office reports that Louise Ellis of Lytton, Iowa, was driving near the intersection of Highway 59 and 320th Street when the car hit a patch of ice and spun out of control.
The car slid down an embankment about 50 feet into the pond area and broke through the ice.
The front end of the 2006 Buick Lucerne submerged up to the rear doors, but the back of the car rested on a frozen marsh.
Ellis was able to crawl into the back seat area while the front of the cab filled with water.
Ellis’s clothing did get, but she was uninjured.
She was transported to the Shenandoah Memorial Hospital to be checked out.
