SPICER -- The woman rescued from a sinking vehicle Thursday afternoon on Green Lake remains under treatment at Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar. The status of her condition was not released Friday by hospital officials.

Kim Kohls, 45, of New London, was taken to the hospital by ambulance after her vehicle went through ice near the Olde Mill Inn. The investigation by the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's office into the incident has been closed, according to Sheriff Dan Hartog.

The sheriff declined further comment, only adding that there were "issues" surrounding the incident. Today marks the second anniversary of a snowmobile accident on the lake that claimed the life of Kohls' son. According to Tribune files, the body of Collin Jay Kohls, 20, of Spicer, was found on Jan. 20, 2006, by friends and law enforcement officials searching near the Olde Mill Inn. At the time, Sheriff Dan Hartog told the Tribune that it appeared that the younger Kohls drove his sled into open water. The open water, where Nest Lake flows into Green Lake, was larger that year because of the warm winter.
