A single-vehicle collision in Ste. Anne resulted in a severed hydro pole Wednesday morning. 

Ste. Anne Fire Chief Bob Saindon says his crews were called to the collision at 11 St. Gerard Street just before 10 AM.  

"Roads were icy and there was one male driver in the pickup truck that slid and hit a hydro pole which broke. He was told to stay in his vehicle until the hydro lines were deenergized as they were draped on his vehicle.” 

Saindon says once the line was deenergized they were able get the driver out safely.
