On the way to show his grandmother the spot where he had recently tried ice fishing for the first time, Harland Dietrich's car broke through thin ice and sank beneath the frigid waters, the second fatal plunge of a car into Lake Minnetonka this year. Dietrich, 31, and Mary Ann Haram, 87, were trapped underwater for about an hour Saturday afternoon before being taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where they died at 7 p.m. Saturday, the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office reported on Sunday afternoon.
