ROSCOMMON CO., Mich. (WXYZ) — Three snowmobiles and one truck fell through thin ice on Houghton Lake in Northern Michigan Sunday, according to Michigan State Police. There were no injuries reported for one snowmobile driver, however, police have not released information on the possible injuries of the remaining three drivers.

Around 12:40 p.m. Sunday afternoon, state troopers responded to the area of Holly Avenue in Prudenville after a snowmobile had gone through the ice on the East Bay of Houghton Lake.

Troopers say the driver was not injured and refused medical treatment. About two hours later, two more snowmobiles went through the ice about 1,000 feet south of the first incident.

It's unclear at this time exactly where the truck went through the ice on Houghton Lake.
