Did You See These Photos of a Car in Lake Minnetonka?

Reports continue to come in of automobiles, ice boats and recreational vehicles going through the ice on Lake Minnetonka.

A Patch reader took these photos of a car getting hauled out of Lake Minnetonka at the pressure ridge that has opened up southwest of the Minnetonka Yacht Club.

The car went in Saturday night. Apparently, the driver got out okay.

The post was shared more than 40 times on Lake Minnetonka Patch's Facebook page.

An iceboat also went in to the water at the same pressure ridge on Sunday. The front runner got stuck under the ice, but with some help from passers-by the ice boaters were able to pull the boat out themselves.

At least one other vehicle went through the ice on Lake Minnetonka this weekend, reportedly Saturday afternoon on Carsons Bay. No injuries were reported.

It has been a hazardous season on Lake Minnetonka. About a dozen vehicles have gone through the ice this winter, most since the beginning of the year. An accident Jan. 18 under the Halstead Bay Bridge in Minnetrista led to the death of an infant, and seven cars went through the ice between Jan. 18 and Jan. 23.
