A Canton man escaped serious injury after he lost control of his vehicle on a town of Canton road Thursday morning.
St. Lawrence County sheriff's deputies say 22 year old Robert Croes was cresting a hill while driving south on Old DeKalb Road around 7:45 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle.
The vehicle went off the opposite side of the road and hit a utility pole, shearing it.
Croes was evaluated by Canton Rescue personnel and denied any injuries.
He was ticketed for speed not reasonable and prudent, failure to keep right, and uninspected motor vehicle.
