Vehicle Breaks Through Ice, Driver Escapes and is Unhurt
On Feb. 10, at 6:11 a.m. Lake Mills Police Officers were dispatched to a report of a vehicle in the water in the 700 block of Owen Street. Upon arrival officers found a vehicle sunk up to its roof in a retention pond. Lake Mills Fire deployed two members in "mustang suits" who checked the car, and found no-one. During its investigation of the accident, the LMPD discovered that the driver of the vehicle, Thomas M. Fisher, 48, of Lake Mills had been negotiating a corner on Owen Street and slid off the roadway and onto the retention pond. While trying to get the vehicle off the ice, the vehicle broke through. The door was pinned shut by the ice and Fisher was able to roll down the driver's window and escape. Fisher walked to work to change into dry clothes at which time he notified the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. The Lake Mills Police Department, Lake Mills Fire Department and Lake Mills EMS all responded to the scene.
