According to the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office, Dwayne Anderson was driving north on State Highway 4 and was unable to see a snowplow traveling in front of him because of poor visibility caused by blowing snow.

Anderson swerved in an attempt to avoid rear-ending the snowplow, but his vehicle struck the side wing of the snowplow and rolled.

Anderson was transported by a private vehicle to the Hutchinson Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

The snowplow, which is owned by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, was operated by Scott Powell, 53, of Hutchinson. Powell was not injured.
