A pickup went off of Highway 27 and struck a power pole near the Four Mile Reserve turnoff Friday, Nov. 22.

The driver was the lone occupant of the vehicle and was not seriously injured in the incident.

RCMP say the accident appeared to be due to wet conditions.

The highway was reduced to singel lane traffic after the accident as the sheared pole posed a risk to passing vehicles.
