Woman survives drive onto pond

February 11, 2011

A woman can thank bone-chilling temperatures for possibly saving her life Thursday night after she drove her car onto a retention pond near Brightpoint Inc. headquarters in Plainfield. The woman was traveling north on South Perry Road when she lost control and ended up on the pond.  The ice on the pond was so thick that the car didn’t fall through. The woman had just gotten off work when the accident happened about 9:30 p.m. She was uninjured.
