The body of a Hannah, North Dakota man was found this morning after his vehicle was submerged in rising waters.

The 51-year-old driver was headed north on 99th Avenue Northeast about eight miles from Wales, North Dakota last night. He attempted to cross a portion of road that had been washed out by rising waters. The highway patrol says he may have tried to exit the vehicle and walk through the icy waters and died from the cold. His name is being withheld pending notification of relatives.
