Hawkesbury OPP has been investigating an incident of a truck that apparently went through the ice somewhere between Wendover and Clarence Point in the early morning of Friday, February 20; however, information has been limited. An unknown man attempted to get a tow earlier that morning claiming that he had ventured onto the Ottawa River with his vehicle using the Wendover boat dock. The man told the tow truck company that his Ford F-150 had gone through the ice. There were apparently two men involved who made it out of the submerged truck unscathed.The caller told the tow truck com- pany that they were looking for an ice-fishing hut to warm up, as they were soaked. The temperature that morning was around -25 degrees Celsius with the wind chill of -40 C. Officers from the Russell County and Hawkesbury detachments responded to the call. The Russell and Hawkesbury OPP detachments, including the Emergency Response Team, searched for the vehicle, driver and passenger, but found nothing. The OPP Aviation Services, the Papineau- ville detachment of the Sureté du Québec and Alfred-Plantagenet fire department also assisted in the search, to no avail.The search was called off at 2 p.m. The man who called spoke English with a French accent.
