EDEN LAKE TOWNSHIP -- A St. Cloud man was able to escape his truck as it broke through the ice on a Stearns County lake this morning.

Sheriff's officials were called to Rice Lake in Eden Lake Township just before 11:00 a.m. to find the truck partially submerged.

64-year-old Richard Antony was able to escape the truck unhurt.

Sheriff's officials say Antony drove onto the lake from the public access and broke through.

Authorities remind you to use extreme caution when venturing out onto the ice, especially if you plan to drive a vehicle.
