The body of the fourth victim of an early January automobile crash was pulled from the Mississippi River on Sunday.

Winona County ­Sheriff David Brand said a robot equipped with sonar detected the body of Andrew Kingsbury, 29, in water 10 feet deep just south of the Hwy. 43 bridge.

Four people died when a vehicle veered off a Winona side street and plunged into the river just north of the bridge.

The driver, Christina Lee Hauser, met Kingsbury and his friends Matthew Erickson and Blake Overland at a Winona tavern that night. The four were last seen leaving at 1:15 a.m. The bodies of Hauser and Erickson were found in Hauser’s sport-utility vehicle in the river. Overland’s body was recovered a few days later.
