EATON RAPIDS, Mich. — The Eaton County Sheriff's Office said the intersection of Canal Road and Columbia Highway is closed until further notice.

On Sunday night, police said a pick-up truck became partially submerged when the driver drove around both sets of barricades and onto ice that is covering a flooded stretch of roadway, near Canal Road and Columbia Highway, in Eaton Rapids.

The driver escaped from the pick-up's cab and jumped into his truck's bed.

He remained there until he was rescued by first responders.

The Eaton County Sheriff told Fox 47 that the truck simply could not be supported by the ice and fell through.

They also report that the driver was not injured.
