The group, who were on an ice fishing trip, lost the vehicle, which is now at the bottom of the lake.
"Five were treated for mild hypothermia and one person was taken to hospital with severe hypothermia," the police report stated.
Police are now reminding residents to always know the condition of ice before venturing out.
