A woman received a late Christmas present on December 28 when the ice on the river didn’t break under the weight of her pickup truck.
Cpl. Brian Evans said at 10:54 a.m. Dec. 28 a woman driver lost control of her 2004 Dodge Ram while driving on Ashnola Road.
The truck went down an embankment coming to a rest on the icy river.
“There were minor injuries. The female driver was taken to hospital. But the ice was thick enough it held,” Evans said.
It took awhile but a tow truck driver was able to get the truck up and off the ice without it breaking.
“I was impressed. He did a good job. It could been something entirely different if the truck had gone through the ice with her in the vehicle or after.”
