Nine Minnesota Snow Plow Collisions Last Week

Comments Off

This past week there were nine collisions with snowplows on Minnesota roads. Four of them took place in southern Minnesota. Each year there are, on average, 93 accidents involving Minnesota snow plows. With each snow fall, more than 1,500 MnDOT drivers clear the 12,000 miles of state roadway. As a result, MnDot issued a warning to all drivers to watch out for snow plows. As part of the warning MnDot asked:

  • Drivers to not use cruse control
  • Stay Clear of Plows
  • Turn On head Lights

Accidents involving snow plows can be a very complicated issue. Make sure to talk to a knowledgeable attorney if you or a family member is involved in one. It is important to investigate early and talk to all available witnesses.
