A rural mail carrier avoided serious injury in a single-vehicle accident Saturday morning on a very slick Big Arbor Vitae Road in the Town of Arbor Vitae. 

No official report on the accident has been made available but it appeared the driver of the vehicle, whose name has not been released, slid into a ditch. He then attempted to get his Ford Escape out of the ditch. The driver got the vehicle out of the ditch but it appeared the vehicle traveled across the road, landing front end first in the lake. 

According to police transmissions, the driver made it to the Woodruff Police Department and ultimately to the Howard Young Medical Center. 

He reportedly suffered some bumps and bruises but otherwise escaped serious injury. A fellow rural mail carrier transferred the mail to another vehicle for delivery.
