A couple in Canada tried to cut two hours off a road trip yesterday by driving ACROSS a frozen lake instead of going around it. (It happened in Manitoba, which is just above Minnesota.)
Apparently people there do it all the time when it's cold enough. But unfortunately they hit some thin ice . . . and ended up losing their truck.
They both jumped out in time, but their truck sank. And they were streaming live on Facebook when it happened.
