Muskegon Lake - spot where the truck fell through the ice

NORTH MUSKEGON, Mich. –  A truck was pulled from Muskegon Lake on Monday evening.

The North Muskegon Fire Department says they were called that a man had tried to drive his truck from 2nd Street over part of Muskegon Lake to the Muskegon Conservation Club.  He didn’t make it and the truck went through the ice and got stuck.

The man was able to get out of the truck and call police, telling them his truck was in the water.  He had to hire a salvage company to get his truck out of the lake.

The fire department told FOX 17 they didn’t know when the truck would be pulled from the lake due to the wintry conditions.  They were able to get it out without having to haul it out in the spring. They say the Department of Natural Resources has also been notified that there is now a truck in Muskegon Lake.

Crews on scene told FOX 17 that beer cans were found in the vehicle.
