Pickup falls through ice in St. Albans

Posted: Updated:

It's almost inevitable this time of year-- reports of vehicles falling through the ice on Lake Champlain. That was the case Wednesday morning on St. Albans Bay. A pickup truck partially plunged through the ice a short distance from shore.

The occupants were able to get out safely. At noontime they were waiting for a towing company to help pull the truck back to dry land.

The cold winter has created a thick layer of ice over much of Lake Champlain, but authorities like to say that no ice is safe ice and driving vehicles on frozen lakes is always dangerous.
