Police are reminding Sudbury area residents to make sure they know the thickness of the ice on waterways before they venture onto them — whether it is walking or riding in or on a vehicle.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a pickup truck went through thin ice on the Vermillion River. The occupants of the truck were able to get out of the truck, before it sank, and made their way onto the shore. There were no injuries to anyone involved.

The truck appeared to be submerged in about five meters of water.

The Ministry of the Environment has been contacted and made aware of this incident.
