Woman’s body found inside car spotted upside down in creek

Authorities say a woman’s body was found inside a car that had crashed into a Polk County creek.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says a bicyclist spotted the car in Fourmile Creek a little before 8 a.m. Sunday while passing by on a bike trail.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Brandon Bracelin says the car was on its top in 3 feet of water and couldn’t be seen from the nearby roadway. He couldn’t say how long the car had been in the creek. A recovery crew removed the vehicle from the water.

The woman’s name hasn’t been released.
