Stolen truck in Echo Lake

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Sometime early Monday morning, a stolen truck was driven into Echo Lake. The thief drove the truck to Echo Lake Park, wedged the gas pedal and aimed it into the north end of the lake off the small beach.

It ended up in about 30 feet of water. It was towed out by Shoreline Police, assisted by the King County Dive Team, who attached cables to the vehicle.

The beach is closed to swimming until all the contaminants from the vehicle have surfaced.

The Echo Lake Neighborhood Association will still hold its annual work party at 4 pm, but will not be putting new sand on the beach because of concerns about trapping oil from the truck.
