In Chicago, a salt truck slid on the icy street right into Lake Michigan.
The incident happened early Wednesday morning. Nobody got hurt. Two workers for the Chicago Park District workers managed to get out of the truck with no injuries when the salt truck they were steering along an icy lakefront bike path slipped into Lake Michigan.
The pickup truck hit a slick spot and slipped backward into the water on Chicago’s near North Side around 7:20 a.m., said Dep. District Chief Jason Lach of the Chicago Fire Department Marine Dive Operations. It slid halfway into the water before getting caught on a breakwall.
The two occupants were able to escape the sinking vehicle and crawl to safety, and both are in good condition.
“They were out there salting the area and the truck slid in,” Park District spokeswoman Michelle Lemons told the Chicago Tribune.
