Chicago Salt Truck Slides Off Ice Patch Into Lake Michigan

A truck that was salting the lake slid on an ice patch--right into Lake Michigan.

After the vehicle got caught on a breakwall, two Chicago Park District employees managed to crawl out and escape without serious injury.

“With the high lake levels we have right now, the water comes up even higher and up onto the bike path and it might not look like it’s dangerous, but it could still be a sheet of glass where anybody can slide and it’s at an angle here," says Chicago Fire Department Dep. District Chief Jason Lach. "You can slide right into the lake, just like this vehicle did."

Happy the two men are OK.
