Reports surfaced Sunday evening of a truck that had gone through the ice near Wyman Dam in Pleasant Ridge Plantation in Somerset County.

The reports came in just after 6 p.m. via email and social media. John McDonald, public information officer for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, said Monday that the incident was not serious.

“Looks like it was merely a truck that got stuck in the slush,” he said by email Monday afternoon.

A news alert of the incident was sent out via email at 6:06 p.m. The dispatch log at the Somerset County Regional Communications Center in Skowhegan listed the incident on Ridge Road as a citizen assist, with game wardens and Bingham and Pleasant Ridge fire units responding.

According to a Facebook post, the rear axle of the truck had broken through the ice.

There were no reports of injuries.

All dispatched units cleared the scene just after 7:30 p.m.
