Culver Resident Loses Truck, Boat and Trailer in Lake Maxinkuckee

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call that a truck was found submerged in Lake Maxinkuckee in Culver.

The investigating officer reports that Cara Lewellen, of Culver, was backing up her boat/trailer into the water on the west shore access of Lake Maxinkuckee. While backing up, she lost control of the vehicle, causing it to become fully submerged in the water. Lewellen escaped from the vehicle before it entered the water and she was not injured. The vehicle and trailer were later retrieved by Marshall County Dive Team members.
