Truck slid off bridge into icy water this morning

A 73 year old man from St. Claude, which is south of Portage, rolled his truck this morning.

He lost control and went over the side of a bridge on Road 18W, around 3kilometres north of Highway 3, in the RM of Dufferin. The pickup truck along with the trailer it was pulling went through the ice into the frigid water.

He was able to free himself from the vehicle and get to shore where a passing motorist offered to help until emergency officials arrived. 

He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
