LAKE WASHINGTON — Five people escaped injury Thursday in two incidents of ATVs going through the ice at Baker's Bay on Lake Washington.

Le Sueur County authorities said one of the daytime incidents involved Dennis Kollasch, 46, Derrick Kollasch, 11, and Jenna Kollasch, 7, addresses not reported.

The other incident involved 50-year-old John Kocina of Le Center and a 54-year-old passenger from Shakopee.

Authorities said lake ice conditions are deteriorating due to warming temperatures.
