Car pulled from Geneva Lake after rolling into water

Car rolls into the lake

Emergency crews were dispatched on Monday, July 26, to the Williams Bay Boat Launch after a car reportedly rolled backwards into the lake. No one was injured but the car is a total loss.

WILLIAMS BAY — A car was pulled from Geneva Lake on Monday morning after it rolled into the water.

The call came in at approximately 9:15 a.m. on Monday, July 26, according to Williams Bay Police Chief Justin Timm.

The vehicle – a Ford Taurus – was reportedly backed into the Williams Bay boat launch at the time to load a boat onto a trailer, Timm said. The driver either didn’t have the vehicle in park or it somehow got out of park and rolled backwards into the water and the driver was unable to stop it, Timm said.
