Those on the ice -- be careful out there. This was the scene early Saturday morning, when a Dodge Durango and its occupants unsuccessfully tried to drive on the ice at the south end of Schroon Lake near the state boat ramp.
We hear from Brooke Van Riper-Clark, who took the photo above, that the driver and two young passengers made it out safely.
The incident took place near the mouth of the Schroon River -- where the ice was very thin! Most insurance policies don't cover "accidents" like this, and we believe the DEC doesn't take too kindly to the various pollutants and toxins expelled by motor vehicles, and a fine might be in works -- not to mention a costly towing bill. Stay safe!
