1 dead after SUV goes into Lake Superior in Wis.

SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) -- One woman has died after a sport utility vehicle went into Lake Superior in the city of Superior.

Police say they were called around 10:30 a.m. Sunday to the North 21st Street boat landing in the Billings Park neighborhood.

A police statement says officers found a mostly submerged SUV in the water just out from the boat landing. Police say the vehicle appeared to have driven off the end of North 21st Street at high speed earlier Sunday morning, and rolled down the hillside before coming to rest in the water below.

A deceased woman was found seatbelted in the driver's seat. Her name is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
