Driver Alive after Taking A Plunge

LINCOLN -- This morning (Monday), there's a hole in the ice at the Campbell's Nursery lake at 56th and Pine Lake Road. Sticking out of that hole is a tree. Here's what happened. Last night, the driver of a pickup went out of control, slid off the street, hit a tree and plunged into the frozen lake. The tree jammed the driver's side door and broke the window. Because the door wouldn't open, the driver climbed out the broken window to safety. Police say no one was seriously hurt and the pickup will remain in the lake this morning.
