Stolen car plunges into Cedar Lake

  • December 13, 2012 - 11:05 PM

No one was injured Thursday afternoon after a stolen car went through the ice at Cedar Lake in Minneapolis. Divers searched the area on the western part of the lake after witnesses reported that a car plunged into the lake about 3 p.m. Witnesses reported that they didn't see anyone get out of the car or emerge from the lake. Maj. Darrell Huggett with the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office said divers didn't find anyone in the water. Authorities believe the driver got out of the car, which they said was stolen, before it went into the lake. The car likely will be removed from the lake Friday.
