Northumberland County-A woman from Northumberland County died after her vehicle drifted into a lake. Locust Township police say 79-year-old Virginia Lindenmuth of Mount Carmel was on her way to camp at "Ideal Park Campground" on Thursday in Columbia County. Officers say her 81- year-old husband, John, got out of the car but forgot to put it in park. The car rolled into the lake, with Virginia trapped inside. Her husband and bystanders pulled her out of the submerged car, but Virginia died from complications last night. Police say no charges will be filed.
