Driver dies after having medical episode before crashing into pond in Sumner Co. | Sumner County

PORTLAND, TN (WSMV) – One woman has died after his vehicle crashed into a pond off Highway 76 on Monday morning near Portland, according to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office.

The vehicle crashed into a pond near The River Church on Highway 76 just after 9 a.m.

According to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was on the scene five minutes after the call. The deputy said he went into the pond after seeing air bubbles and movement coming from the submerged van.

That deputy got about 15-18 feet out before the cold temperatures drove him back to shore. When additional units arrived, they found a 43-year-old woman from the Cottontown area deceased in the car.
