BEDFORD: Police are warning motorists how dangerous not cleaning your car of ice can be.

The advisory comes after a motorist was lucky to only suffer minor injuries after the vehicle they were driving had its windshield destroyed.

Halifax District RCMP responded Jan. 5 to a report of a vehicle hit by a chuck of ice that flew off an oncoming vehicle on the Bedford Bypass. The incident occurred before 9 a.m.

Police said the vehicle sustained significant damage.
