Man killed when commercial transport vehicle crashes through Lake of the Woods ice

A commercial transport vehicle commonly known as a "bomber" crashed through the ice on Lake of the Woods in the Northwest Angle on Thursday morning, killing one of the passengers.

It is believed to be Minnesota's second ice fishing fatality of the season.

The accident near Flag Island up north was reported shortly after 8 a.m. The body of a male passenger was recovered about seven hours later in about 10 feet of water by a Cass County dive team, according to a statement from the Lake of the Woods County Sheriff's Office. The statement provided no other details, saying the incident was under investigation and that family members of the deceased were still being notified.
