Pickup driver injured after colliding head-on with snowplow
RAY, N.D. (AP) — A 76-year-old North Dakota man driving a pickup the wrong way on a four-lane highway was seriously injured after running head-on into a snowplow early Monday morning, authorities said.
The crash happened about 4:15 a.m. on U.S. Highway 2 about 12 miles east of Ray. The Highway Patrol says the snowplow operator saw the pickup driver traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes and slowed to almost a complete stop before the collision.
The pickup driver, who lives in Ray, was taken to a Williston hospital. The snowplow driver, 56-year-old Wayne Lerohl, was not injured.
The crash remains under investigation.
