Preston woman survives vehicular plunge into Root River


Mon, Jan 19th, 2015
Posted in Preston Features



At approximately 7:11 p.m., on Friday, January 9, 2015, the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Department dispatch received a report that there was a one vehicle accident south of Wykoff on County Road 5, just south of County Road 12 on the way to Forestville State Park. The vehicle had been traveling southbound. The driver, 19-year-old Brittany Erding, a Preston resident, had left the road and plunged 30 to 40 feet into the ice cold Root River.

Erding was the only occupant of the vehicle, and it was confirmed by the Spring Valley Ambulance Department that she was not injured.

Brittany Erding has been nominated by Sgt. Derek Fuglestad for a “Saved by the Seatbelt Award”. Sheriff Kaase said that he felt that the seatbelt had a significant impact on preventing injuries during the fall of the vehicle.
