The Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota has closed the Lake Hanska main landing after a pickup broke through the ice on Saturday.

On Jan. 21, at 1:32 p.m., the Brown County Sheriff’s Office learned the pickup truck had broken through the ice near the main landing on the east side of the lake on County Road 6. There were no injuries and there are arrangements being made to remove the pickup truck.

The Brown County Sheriff’s Office reminds everyone of the current thin ice conditions on many local area lakes and rivers in Brown County. While no ice is 100 percent safe, please use caution anytime you venture onto lake ice or river ice, especially at night.

Refrain from driving on ice whenever possible. If you must drive a vehicle, keep your windows down and be prepared to leave it in a hurry. And finally, tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return.
