2 escape injury after semi rear-ends North Dakota snowplow near Jamestown, state troopers say
JAMESTOWN, N.D. — Two men escaped injury after a semi rear-ended a North Dakota snowplow Saturday, Jan. 15, near Jamestown on Interstate 94.
An unidentified 53-year-old from Jamestown was driving a Department of Transportation snowplow east about 5 miles east of Jamestown when a 1999 Freightliner semi, driven by a 32-year-old from Hawley, Minnesota, struck the snowplow, according to a news release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The Jamestown man was blading snow in the right-hand lane and partially on the south shoulder, the release said. Weather conditions caused blowing snow that resulted in drifts, according to state troopers.
The semi went into the south ditch and overturned, but neither driver was injured. Both were wearing seatbelts, the release said.
The Hawley man was cited for careless driving, the Highway Patrol said. The crash remains under investigation.
