The 44-year old went off a slippery County Road 38 near Colgate late this afternoon. There was about 3 inches of wet snow on the road at the time. The truck ended up on its top and submerged.

A person nearby in their driveway saw the rollover, grabbed a hammer and smashed the windows, saving the father and his 15-year old son.

The dad was transported to Sanford for hypothermia. The son was treated at the scene.
