SUV Drops From Bridge Into Icy Saginaw River

Posted: Updated:

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A vehicle dropped from a bridge into the icy Saginaw River.

One person got out of the sport utility vehicle on his own and called 911. A second person was rescued shortly afterward.

The Saginaw County sheriff's department tells WEYI-TV the driver was taken to the hospital. MLive.com says the condition of the passenger hasn't been released.

The crash happened at about 5 p.m. Wednesday when the vehicle lost control and went over a guardrail.

The SUV dropped dozens of feet and got stuck nose-first in the ice below.

Rescue crews hooked cables to the vehicle and hauled it back up on to the bridge.
