Bridgetown volunteer firefighters arrive at the scene of a single-vehicle crash along Granville Street West in Bridgetown, about 11 a.m. after a car left the road and sheared off a hydro pole Monday, March 3. EHS paramedics checked out the driver and a two-year-old child who were in the car. They were not injured. The area had just been blanketed with fresh snow that made for slick driving conditions.
