(Part-2)  Truck crashes through Mille Lacs Lake ice, killing Minnesota man.

The Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office has issued a warning to the general public, urging them to exercise increased caution since the country is now experiencing excessive temperatures.

"This is another reminder to the public that ice conditions are not safe for driving cars and trucks on right now," according to the county sheriff's office. 

 The thickness of the ice at the location where this awful event occurred was roughly six inches. Thirteen to seventeen inches is the recommended range for clean ice for a truck. Because of the rains and the mild temperatures, the ice on many lakes across the state is not clear enough to be considered perfect.

Approximately 107 miles to the north of Minneapolis is where you will find Mille Lacs Lake. The event occurred close to the MSA Flagship Inn, which is around 8 miles away from Isle.

According to a GoFundMe page that was established to cover Gadbois's burial and medical expenses, Gadbois, who was affectionately referred to as "Dickie," was a neighborhood icon and "hometown hero" for nearly half a century.

Where this terrible event occurred, the ice was around six inches thick. For trucks, 13–17 inches is the suggested standard for clear ice. 

Rains and mild temperatures have made the ice on numerous lakes around the state less than ideal, making it difficult to see.

The following is an excerpt from a statement that was published on the GoFundMe page: "Just knowing Dickie made you a better person." "From his work ethic to knowledge of the lake, down to his laugh, he was just an all-around great human!"
