BEDEQUE - A Kinkora woman and her son escaped injuries after their truck skidded off Highway 1A near Bedeque Tuesday morning.
The Dodge Ram 1500 4-by-4 struck and damaged a telephone pole before coming to rest in the ditch.
The single-vehicle accident happened at about 10:40 a.m.
Paramedics checked the pair at the scene before releasing them.
"They're very fortunate," said Curtis MacLean, who lives on Rte 1A next to the yard where the truck hit the pole.
He said he saw the woman and her son next to the truck afterwards.
"They're fine," he said.
The area where the truck went off the road was "all packed snow with ice," said MacLean.
Although the pole shattered at contact, the woman and her son, believed to be 13, were lucky the structure didn't fall onto their cab, he said. Also they were fortunate the wires didn't snap off and fall onto the road or the truck, said MacLean.
He added it could have been a far worse outcome if the vehicle had been a car instead.
"They're lucky they didn't hit that pole with a little car."
East Prince RCMP say Highway 1A was icy and snow-covered in spots.
