MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities said there were no serious injuries after two vehicles went through the ice on a southern Minnesota lake on Friday.

The LeSueur County Sheriff’s Office was responded to the accident on Scotch Lake in the rural area of Cleveland, Minn., at about 4:09 p.m. Friday. When authorities arrived, a 35-year-old St. Peter man and his son were driving out onto the lake to go ice fishing and were about 400 yards out on the ice from the public access when a wheel on the man’s pick-up truck went through the ice.

The man called a friend for help, and his vehicle also went through the ice while trying to provide assistance.

All three were able to escape safely and were not hurt in the accidents. An area towing company will removed the vehicles from the lake on Saturday.

It serves as another warning from authorities that despite our snow and cold temperatures, no ice is safe.
