Vehicle falls through the ice on Otter Tail Lake

OTTER TAIL COUNTY, MN (Valley News Live) - The Otter Tail County Sheriffs Office received a call on Saturday morning around 6 a.m. from a 26 year old man reporting his vehicle had fallen through ice on Otter Tail Lake near Otter Tail County.

The man was not familiar with the area and had been traveling across Otter Tail Lake before traveling too close to an outlet of the lake near Co Hwy 1.

The thin ice near the outlet combined with the vehicles weight caused the vehicle to fall through into roughly 4 feet of water.

The man was not injured, and he contacted Minnesota DNR to have his vehicle removed from the lake.
