Truck Driver Drives Onto Lake Minnetonka Because His GPS Told Him To...

In a testament to the thickness of the ice on Lake Minnetonka, a semi-trailer truck ended up driving onto the lake this weekend and miraculously did not fall through.

It happened Saturday on Carson's Bay, which is near the town of Deephaven on the lake's eastern shores.

According to FOX 9, the driver was trying to make a delivery to a local home when he accidentally drove onto a snow-covered part of the lake. 

The station says the truck was able to eventually leave the ice without incident — or injuries or damage — thanks to some bystanders, including one man who used his pickup to pull the truck "to a less snowy area."

Comments from witnesses on both Facebook and Twitter indicate the driver was led onto the ice by his GPS (video of the truck can be found in the tweet below):
