A truck broke through the ice at Eagle Point Saturday night or early Sunday according to Columbia Township Police. One observer believed that a boat dock on the east side of the marina may have been damaged. Today, police are at the scene. Chief David Elwell indicates as of this (Sunday) afternoon, the “driver had not yet made contact with us, nor us with him.”
Crews with an excavator are working on pulling it out of the water. There is a steep dropoff at that location and the truck is likely down about 25 feet.
Last year, a car broke through the ice at the west end near the boat launch, but the details were different. To view the story, please click here.
