At the end of December, there were four accidents involving snow plows across the state. The new year is starting the same way the last one ended.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says that on Jan. 4 just before 9 a.m., a snow plow was clearing snow on the on and off ramps on Highway 46 at exit 48 which coincides with the I-29 juncture. The plow was crossing the off ramp and heading to the on ramp when the plow was struck by a Ford F-150.

The F-150 was traveling westbound on Highway 46 and struck the passenger side of the plow on the front of the truck.

The driver of the F-150 who is a 64 year old male, was transported to Sanford Hospital in Fargo with non-life threatening injuries.

The plow driver, a 45 year old male, did not suffer any injuries.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash.

Two other accidents involving Ford F-150's occurred earlier this week. One led to serious injury near Jamestown. The other led to a fatality near Stanley.
