Default Bad U-Joint?

up here in Maine we just got hit with another big snow storm, I was riding on the back road when I saw someone in a ditch so I put my truck in 4 wheel drive, all was fine up till this point, as I started to hit the gas the truck made a thumping noise, I was ale to pull the guy out but the thumping was still there, could it be a bad U-Joint?
