EAST GULL LAKE, Minn. -- The body of a 61-year-old Nisswa man was recovered from an overturned vehicle found Tuesday morning in the Gull River in Cass County.

Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch said authorities were notified of a single-vehicle crash at 6:41 a.m. April 10 near Gull Dam Road and Gull Lake Lane in East Gull Lake. Officers and other first responders located a 2012 Mercedes-Benz passenger car on its roof in the Gull River. The male driver was the only occupant and was located deceased inside the vehicle.

Burch said the initial investigation indicates the vehicle was travelling west on Gull Lake Dam Road and went through the intersection of Gull Lake Lane into the river.

The identity of the driver is being withheld pending notification of family members, Burch said. An autopsy is scheduled with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office and the crash remains under investigation.
