A truck broke through thin ice and sunk into Rice Lake on Tuesday morning, Jan. 12, according to the Rice Lake Police Department. Local EMS, Rice Lake police officers, Rice Lake firefighters, and the Rice Lake Street Department responded. It happened on the north end of the lake near the old hospital, RLPD said. The driver, who was the only occupant, was able to escape from the vehicle before it submerged under the ice. Open water could be seen near where the vehicle broke through the ice. Pictured above, police and firefighters respond to the location.
