The Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office says that 50-year-old Daniel Murphy lost control of his truck on the ice at around 11:15 a.m. 

They say the truck went into the ditch and then fell 60 feet into the quarry, landing in about four feet of water.

Murphy was taken to Allen Hospital for treatment.

Black Hawk County was assisted by the La Porte City Police Department and La Porte City Fire and Rescue.
