A woman drives into South Lincoln Pond; LFR blames the icy roads

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nebraska) – A woman managed to escape her submerged vehicle after entering a pond south of Lincoln Wednesday afternoon.

Lincoln Fire & Rescue crews were dispatched to the pond near 14th Street & Yankee Hill Road at approximately 4:35 p.m.

Battalion Chief Jeff Topil thinks the icy roads pushed the woman into the pond.

The woman managed to get out of the vehicle and was helped out of the water by a passerby and a Lincoln Police officer.

She was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her cold-related injuries, Topil said.

The crews are now considering whether it is safe to take the sunken vehicle out of the pond.
