Plow Truck Falls Into Ditch Near Beauval

A manager filling in for striking snowplow operators was involved in a mishap yesterday near Beauval.
Highways Department spokesman Doug Wakabayashi says it appears the plow truck the manager was driving at the time went down a steep embankment.
The driver was not hurt, but was taken to hospital as a precaution and was then released.
However, the truck was heavily damaged.
Wakabayashi says it isn’t clear if the truck was plowing snow at the time, or simply en route to a site that needed to be plowed.
He says the investigation into the incident will be handled the same way an accident involving a regular snowplow operator would be dealt with.
