A 48-year-old man made it to safety but lost his pickup truck when it broke through thin ice and sank to the bottom of a northern Vermont lake. State Police say Paul Lavalette of Newport was driving his truck on the west shore of Lake Memphremagog at about 6 a.m. Saturday when it traveled over a pressure crack and broke through the ice. Police say Lavalette was able to get out of the truck before it sank, but the vehicle was submerged in about 25 feet of water.
