OSHKOSH – The Oshkosh Fire Department was called to investigate a report of a truck through the ice on Lake Winnebago. It happened about 12 a.m. on Wednesday.
Officials say the truck went into an existing crack in the ice on Miller’s Bay at the end of Merritt Avenue in Oshkosh.
The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department says the truck was empty, and it appears the driver attempted to pull the truck out of the water.
Deputies say the driver abandoned the truck, and did not notify officials that the truck was in the water.
The truck was removed from the lake on Wednesday afternoon.
