Vehicle goes through ice

Category: 

Around 2:20 p.m. on Sunday, the Kenora OPP received a call of a pick-up truck that had gone through the ice near Clearwater Bay.

Police were advised that a Manitoba resident was driving on an ice road on Lake of the Woods when the vehicle went through.

All of the occupants were able to make it to safety without injury.

The OPP wants to remind the public to use extreme caution when travelling over frozen waterways, especially in the spring.

Ice conditions can change quickly with warmer weather and increased water flow.

Always tell someone where you are going and what time you plan on returning.

And when travelling with more than one vehicle, keep a safe distance between the two in case one does go through.
