Snow plow operator unhurt after plow overturns in ditch

February 5, 2015 by Mark H. Anbinder

We were relieved to hear the snow plow operator whose plow overturned in a ditch this morning was apparently unhurt in the mishap. The driver was unable to keep the plow upright while attempting to plow at the side of a rural stretch of two-lane road.

Photo courtesy of AJ Hanson.The plow incident occurred on Davis Road in Richford, southwest of the intersection of NYS Route 79 and Route 38, about 20 minutes east of Ithaca. Area resident AJ Hanson, who saw the aftermath and kindly allowed us to share his photo, tells us the operator was apparently unhurt.

City, town, and county crews had their work cut out for them this morning, clearing roads of several inches of new snow that fell last night, with lots of snow still on the ground from the storm Sunday night through Monday.
