One person is dead after a truck drove into a Racine Pond on the city's southwest side.

Racine police said a witness saw the truck swerve out of control and drive into the pond near the corner of 21st Street and Greenbay Road between that Chase bank and Toys R Us. 

Rescue personnel and other authorities fished the truck out, but the occupant was later pronounced dead. The cause of death is not clear at this time.  

The pond had nearly frozen over with the cold weather, and the truck appeared to go through the ice. 

Any witnesses, or citizens with information, are urged to call the Racine Police Department Investigations Unit at (262) 635-7756.
