Car submerged in Lake Minnetonka injures two passengers

| No Comments

Two people were pulled from a car that had been submerged in Lake Minnetonka for almost an hour on Saturday, according to Kare 11.

Emergency crews found the car and victims under approximately 10 feet of water when they rescued them and took them to the hospital, news sources reported.

The vehicle broke the ice on the lake while one of the passengers, a man in his 30s, was driving under the County Highway 101 bridge in Grays Bay with an elderly woman, Kare 11 said.

First responders, including Minnetonka Fire, Wayzata Fire, Hennepin County Water Patrol and divers, closed the bridge indefinitely while they worked on getting the victims out, and the Hennepin County Sheriff advised everyone to avoid the bridges and causeways on Lake Minnetonka as much as possible over the weekend, according to the Minnetonka Patch.
