TOWN OF BELOIT, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say three teenagers escaped from a car before it broke through the ice on the Rock River in the Town of Beloit and began to sink.

Fire Department Lt. Joe Raddatz says two 17-year-old boys and a 16-year-old girl drove to the Armstrong Eddy Park boat launch Monday night. He says the driver wasn’t able to stop the car and it slid about 50 feet from the boat launch onto the ice. The teens scrambled out of the car before it broke through.

Town of Beloit Police Chief Steve Kopp tells the Janesville Gazette (https://bit.ly/1sfenwd ) the 17-year-old driver will be cited for endangering safety by reckless driving. Police say the girl was taken to Beloit Memorial Hospital while the boys were released to their parents.

A tow truck pulled the car out of the water.
