Lancaster man charged with OUI after his truck falls through the ice on local pond
LANCASTER - A man whose pickup truck plunged through the ice on Martin Meadow Pond has been charged with operating under the influence.
Conservation officers with the Fish and Game department said they were notified of the truck through the ice shortly after 8 p.m. on Thursday.
Only one person was in the truck and he was able to get out safely. He was identified as 24-year-old Landon Wright, of Lancaster. He said he'd been ice fishing on the pond and was trying to drive back onto land when his truck broke through the ice about 100 feet from shore.
After being checked out by first responders, he was taken to the Lancaster police station for tests and subsequently arrested for operating under the influence.
Wright was advised that he has 24 hours to remove the truck from the water using a method approved by the N.H. Department of Environmental Services.
