A driver is lucky to have escaped uninjured after a frightening incident in the Placentia area this morning.
The van was driving through the community when a large piece of ice came off the roof and struck the windshield of a pickup heading in the opposite direction.
The driver of the pickup was not hurt, but the ice did smash the windshield.
Police are reminding drivers to make sure their vehicles are completely clear of all snow and ice to avoid causing injury to other drivers or pedestrians.
Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
