Truck recovered from Lake Winona after 30 years



A sunken truck mystery is waiting to be solved in Winona.

A Ford pickup truck was pulled out of Lake Winona on Sunday, and police are trying to find out how it got there. 

Investigators think the pickup may have been on the lake bottom for about 30 years, because it had a Wisconsin license plate from 1990. 

A fisherman located the truck about 100 yards from shore, while using a fish-finding device. 

There’s speculation that the truck might have been used for ice fishing, and fell through the ice.
