WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) - Rescue crews pulled the fourth victim of a Winona river crash from the Mississippi Sunday afternoon, bringing an end to the 2-week-long search.
Crews found 29-year-old Andrew Kingsbury of La Crosse about 300 yards from the spot where an SUV crashed through the ice early in the morning Jan. 5. Underwater cameras spotted Kingsbury's body under 10 feet of water around 3:45 p.m. Sunday. Rescue divers from Washington County helped to recover Kingsbury from the water.
Christina Lee Hauser, 36, of Winona, and Matthew Erickson, 30, were found inside the vehicle. A third victim, Blake Eric Overland, 28, of Stewartville, was found by underwater cameras in the river a day later.
Police believe all four were traveling together after they left a Winona tavern around 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 5.
31 departments from Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin lent their time to the search over the last two weeks, putting in 1,400 hours of time. Most were volunteers offering their help for free.24011832
