It happened in the winter of 1941 and Harold Steele was driving the vehicle. He said it'S A 1928 Chevrolet . It had a rumble seat and the mail was carried in that seat. Harold drove across the ice road between Morristown and Brockville. They used Christmas trees every 200 yards or so to mark the road. He said when the vehicle went through the ice Harold dove out the door. He had a hard time getting onto the ice. He had heavy mittens on so he put his hands on the ice until his mittens froze and pulled himself out. He said this vehicle has a 4 cylinder engine.

Prohibition ended in the USA December 5, 1933. If it really happened in 1941 then the original story is suspect. =( (14 hours ago)
