Driver injured in crash with snow plow - updated
A Hickson, N.D., man was injured after a crash with a snowplow on Thursday in Cass County, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
A 2013 International snowplow with a tow plow belonging to the North Dakota Department of Transportation was clearing snow on the northbound exit 48 off-ramp of Interstate 29 at the junction with N.D. Highway 46 when the crash occurred at 8:55 a.m., the patrol said. The snowplow crossed from the Highway 46 off-ramp to the on-ramp when a westbound 2014 Ford F150 struck the plow from the passenger side and caused damage to the front of the plow.
The drivers of both vehicles wore seat belts. The 64-year-old driver of the Ford was transported by Kindred Area Ambulance Service to Sanford Health in Fargo for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, the patrol said. An air bag deployed in the Ford.
The snowplow driver, a 45-year-old man from Fargo, was not injured in the crash, the patrol said.
The patrol is investigating the crash. Cass County Sheriff’s Office and Horace Fire Department also responded to the scene.
