Six Crashes Involving Snowplows Recorded Thursday


There were six snowplow crashes over an 8 hour period yesterday according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol and DOT. 

Four of those accidents involved vehicles rear-ending snow plows. 

Those accidents were on I-94 near Richardton, Hebron and Steele. 

One was on Highway 85 near Williston. 

Two accidents happened when drivers attempted to pass snowplows. 

One of those accidents resulted in a fatal crash near Killdeer. 

Which is why the state highway patrol and department of transportation want to remind drivers to be careful. 

Motorists are reminded to drive with caution around snowplows and follow these safety tips:

• Slow down and drive according to the conditions

• Stay back at least five car lengths behind the snowplow. Be patient, the driver will periodically pull over to allow traffic to pass

• Never drive through “white-outs” or “snow fog” caused by cross winds or plowing snow. Wait until you can clearly see your surroundings

• Know where the snowplow is on multi-lane roadways, and remember the plow could be in either lane or on the shoulder
