LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Emergency crews responded before sunrise on Thursday morning to a garbage truck in a playa lake.
Lubbock police now confirm the truck was stolen overnight. Police also think it was intentionally run into the lake as part of a joy ride.
However, early on, the situation caused a scare because emergency crews were not certain if anyone was inside the truck.
The Lubbock Fire Department dive team showed up on scene and was relieved to find out their services would not be needed. There are no reports of injuries.
