CASPER, Wyo. — A WYDOT snowplow was struck by a motorist on a Wyoming interstate. This marks the second such instance since a plow was truck on January 30th.
According to WYDOT Northeast’s Facebook page, the plow was hit from behind Monday morning on I-90 near mile marker 94.
“Thankfully there were no injuries to either party, but the plow’s sander has seen better days,” WYDOT officials said on Social Media. “Please, Folks. SLOW DOWN! Incidents like these put trucks out of commission, cost in repairs and take the operators off the road for a short time – TIME, that could be used to clear the roads.”
