Target truck crashes, sinks in pond [VIDEO]
A Target truck experienced its very own race to the bottom this morning.
Some business observers might argue that Target is sinking, but they surely wouldn't have this in mind.
Around 6 a.m. this morning, a Target semi-trailer driving eastbound on Interstate 94 near Monticello drove off the road onto a pond, then broke through the thin ice and sank.
A State Patrol spokesman said the driver, 35-year-old John Nettifee of Anoka, escaped with only minor injuries. His truck and cargo likely sustained more damage.
The spokesman said authorities are working to winch the truck out of the pond.
A video of the sunken truck can be found here.
