Minnesota woman dies when vehicle plunges into lake

JACKSON, Minn. -- A Lakefield woman apparently died after her vehicle plunged into the waters of a southern Minnesota lake.

According to information released Monday, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a vehicle partially submerged in water at 6:55 p.m. Friday on the northeast side of Clear Lake. When deputies arrived on the scene, they located a 2005 Mazda partially submerged next to a dock. A deceased person, later identified as Cassidy Voss, 23, of Lakefield, was inside the vehicle.

It was determined that Voss was westbound on Jackson County 10 and failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. The vehicle entered the south ditch and struck an approach leading to the lakeshore. The vehicle then vaulted into some shoreline trees and came to rest next to the dock.

It has not been determined when the accident actually happened.
