Slippery When Icy
- A Chicago Park District vehicle slid off an icy bike path near Oak Street beach and plunged into Lake Michigan Friday morning as workers were removing graffiti, officials said.
The crew was working along the bike path at 1000 North Lake Lake Shore around 10:30 a.m. when the vehicle "slid from the iced area into Lake Michigan," according to Park District spokeswoman Jessica Maxey-Faulkner.
No one was in the vehicle and no injuries were reported.
Perhaps a quick lesson in the physics of friction, angled ground and gravity is in order? And a safer place to park heavy vehicles while working.
