Truck crashes into Conconully lake

No patient found where vehicle was recovered

— A report that one person was trapped in a truck that broke through the ice on Conconully Reservoir on Saturday evening turned out to be partially true.

Fire District No. 9 and the Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office were called around 5:30 p.m.

Deputies found the situation “was all handled before we got there,” Sheriff Frank Rogers said.

Deputy Ottis Buzzard wrote in his report that Fire District No. 9 canceled LifeLine Ambulance and Omak Fire Department, but reported alcohol apparently was involved.

The department said the vehicle had been pulled out of the lake and there was no patient.

“On arrival I could not locate the scene or any individuals involved,” Buzzard said.
