It was the first time the driver had been to Lake Winnebago and he drove over Christmas trees that were placed on the icy road to divert traffic from a crack, the Oshkosh Northwestern reported.

"He just drove in a bad spot, that's all," Don Herman, owner of Sunk? Dive and Ice Service, told the Northwestern.

It was the 13th vehicle Herman has removed from the lake this year.

The driver was able to escape from the truck before it sank and was not injured.
