Woman Escapes Injury After Her Vehicle Became Submerged in Creek

A Paullina woman escaped injury last week when the vehicle she was driving left the road and went into a creek.

According to the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office, the accident took place late in the afternoon this past Wednesday. 63-year-old Michelle Couldren was driving southbound in the 41-hundred mile of Polk Avenue when she swerved to miss a deer on the road. Couldren’s vehicle left the roadway, and went down an embankment where it became submerged in a creek.

Couldren reportedly had to be extricated from the vehicle.
