Man Dies As Car Falls Through Ice In Wisconsin
A man has been killed when his car veered into the Mississippi River ice and fell through a hole.
The man was pulled from the vehicle but died, officials said.
Sergeant Randy Rank in La Crosse, Wisconsin, said police were alerted by a caller who had noticed tracks going over a bank.
"The vehicle was still on its tyres when it landed on the ice," he said.
"You can see the tyre tracks, it had made a left turn and tried to continue driving on the ice on Swift Creek, went a short distance and fell through the ice."
The ice was not thick enough to sustain the weight of the car, which was towed out of the water after a diver attached cables to it.
The driver was believed to be the only person in the vehicle.
