REISTERSTOWN, Md.  — The body of a 71-year-old woman was pulled out of a lake in Reisterstown Wednesday evening.

Police said Ella Zagranichny died after she drove into Delight Quarry lake, off of Quarry View Court (near Franklin Boulevard and Nicodemus).

(Fire crews originally misidentified the location as Quarry Lake in Pikesville.)

Officers said Zagranichny was attempting to park her 2019 Nissan Rogue when she accelerated over the curb, continuing through a fence and down an embankment and into the quarry.

Tactical rescue and dive teams found the woman and got her out of the water.

Officials said there were no other people in the car after divers swept and cleared the car and surrounding areas.

Crews from the Baltimore County Police Department and Baltimore County Fire Departments responded.
