Woman Dies In Lyle Point Boat Launch Accident

A 61-year-old Toppenish woman died Monday night when the car she was driving went into the Columbia River near the boat launch at Lyle Point.  According to the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office, Cheryl Moses was pronounced dead at the scene.  The Skamania County Sheriff’s Office dive team located the vehicle in about 12 feet of water about 40 feet south of the shoreline.  They used a tow cable to remove the vehicle from the water.  Lyle First Responders and Klickitat County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the location just after 11 p.m. Monday, as friends and family of the driver were attempting to rescue Moses from the vehicle.
