No injuries after truck enters Wood Lake

The driver of a truck that went off Highway 97 into Wood Lake Wednesday was cold and wet but not injured.

Lake Country RCMP received a report of a flat-deck pickup truck in the lake just north of Oceola Road at 4:45 a.m.

“The truck’s lights were still on but witnesses could not see if the vehicle was occupied,” said Cst. Kris Clark, with the RCMP.

“Emergency crews responded and confirmed that the truck was empty and no one was located nearby.”

The 35-year-old Lake Country man was eventually found by police walking along the highway near the Lake Country Inn.

According to the police, the driver was northbound on Highway 97 when he apparently hit a slushy section and lost control of the vehicle before it entered Wood Lake.
