The area were the truck sank, the Glendale Docks, is said to be a popular location for people to drive onto the lake, but warmer weather created unsafe conditions.

Officials say six inches of ice is needed to support a person, and 8-10 inches of ice can support an all-terrain vehicle.

It’s not clear if anyone was injured in the incident.
