Firefighters assisted a woman to shore after she drove her car approximately 100 feet out onto a pond in Lakewood Thursday evening, authorities said.
The Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department and Lakewood Police Department responded around 8:50 p.m. Thursday to the area of Turnberry Trail and Bonnie Ridge Road for a report of a water rescue.
Crystal Lake Deputy Fire Chief Craig Snyder said a vehicle had driven onto the ice.
The vehicle never went through the ice and the driver was in the car when firefighters arrived.
Snyder said the driver was uninjured and firefighters went out to assist her.
They guided her back to shore and she was evaluated by paramedics.
Paramedics transported her to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Woodstock for an evaluation, according to fire department radio traffic.
A tow truck was called to the scene to remove the car from the pond. The car was approximately 100 feet out from shore.
The car was removed from the pond within an hour after crews used rope and a tow cable to pull it to shore, a witness said.
Further details about what led to the car driving on the ice were not available.
The Lakewood Police Department said they would release additional information on the incident later Friday.
