December 12, 2010

Joshua Markin, 25, of South Bend's black Durango became submerged at the Lawrence Lake access site on Olive Trail Friday morning. Markin said he was planning on fowl hunting at the lake and was parked on the ramp access. He said he returned to the truck and it began to move forward.
