A car that was encased in ice by freezing mists churned up along the shore of Lake Erie has finally been freed.

The combination of high winds, cold temperatures, and a still unfrozen Lake Erie, spelled trouble for the owner of a car parked outside Hoak's Lakeshore restaurant in Hamburg Sunday afternoon.

By Monday morning, the little Mitsubishi had been turned into an ice sculpture from the spray of the water. It quickly became a bit of a tourist attraction as folks passing by stopped to snap a picture of the frozen car.

Lenny Iwanenko, of Lake Erie Towing & Recovery, said it took 350 pounds of calcium flake and a towing apparatus to get the car out.

"First I've encountered in 28 years of being in an industry for something of that magnitude," he said.
