Email News Alerts

A brief but frantic search for victims in a lake accident last May resulted in a DWI conviction and a suspended sentence for a Park Rapids woman this week.


Julia Christen Kujawa's car was spotted May 18 in East Crooked Lake partially submerged. Nevis firefighters, on their way to an inferno, could not stop but radioed for help. Ambulance personnel and deputies saw the car and began a search for the owner and occupants.
