An unoccupied Chicago Park District vehicle slid off the Lakefront Trail and into Lake Michigan Friday morning on the Near North Side, authorities said.
At about 10:30 a.m., park district workers were removing graffiti from the Lakefront bike path.
“The area was frozen, and a Chicago Park District vehicle slid from the iced area into Lake Michigan,” the park district said in a statement.
Nobody was inside the vehicle at the time, and no injuries were reported, Chicago police said.
The bike path between North and Ohio will be closed for salting and clearing until further notice. Bikers are being redirected, the park district said.
Efforts to recover the vehicle from the lake apparently had been suspended, pending the return of warmer weather on Saturday.
