A La Crosse man is uninjured after his UTV goes through the ice near Stoddard Tuesday afternoon.

The Vernon County Sheriff's Office said the Andrew Loomis, 31, was driving his 2017 Polaris side-by-side on the ice on Running Slough when he crossed a pressure ridge and went through the ice.

It happened about 100 yards southwest of the Stoddard Municipal Boat Landing.

Loomis was able to get out of the water on his own, but his UTV sank. He refused medical treatment at the scene.
