Truck Cuts Off Utah Snowplow, Plow Slides Off Road

The Utah Department of Transportation warned drivers to give plows room on the road after one slid off a road when a truck passed it on the right on Thursday, January 12.

The video shows a tractor-trailer truck pass the plow on the right, causing the plow to slide across the road and off the side of a canyon. Local media reported the driver was “pretty banged up,” but was expected to survive.

The DOT stressed it was important to give plows room by not following too close or passing them in the manner in the video. Credit: Utah Department of Transportation via Storyful
