Snowplow crash at Hector International Airport puts woman in hospital

FARGO - A woman is in the hospital after a snowplow hit her just after 3 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Hector International Airport in Fargo.

According to Fargo Police Sgt. Matt Ysteboe, the woman was walking in front of the airport when the snowplow was backing up.

The driver of the plow didn't see the woman and accidentally backed into her.


Sgt. Yesteboe said the woman likely suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Fargo Police want to remind residents that snowplows cannot always see where pedestrians are walking and to make sure it's safe when walking around them.
