MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Mississippi County Sheriff's Department and other agencies recovered a man's body inside a vehicle submerged near Big Lake Friday morning.

Region 8 News reports that because the water current was too strong and level too high, the Craighead County Dive Team called to help pull the vehicle out of the water.

Officers received a call around 6a.m. from a delivery truck driver who told officers a driver slid on an icy road into a water filled ditch after crossing in front of him.

No names have been released at this time.
