Accident victim found a mile away

Posted by wlpo on February 25, 2012

Ten search and rescue teams looking Saturday for an accident victim in Northwest Livingston county found her dead a mile from the crash. Livingston County Sheriff’s office was called about 8:30am today (yesterday) about a Pontiac car in a creek three and a half miles southwest of Streator. Search and rescue from as far as Naplate later found the woman’s body a mile south of the accident. The identity of the woman will be released later by the Coroner. The Sheriff’s office believes the Pontiac was south on 100 East Road, drove through a bridge barricade, struck a tree and stopped in a creek. The woman apparently walked a mile before collapsing two and one half miles south of the village of Munster. Investigation continues by the Livingston County Sheriff and Coroner.
