EL PASO COUNTY - A woman was injured and her SUV totaled after she ran head-on into a snow plow Tuesday morning. According to the Colorado State Patrol, she was driving behind a snow plow westbound on Judge Orr Rd., east of the Calhan Highway, when she attempted to pass the snow plow. As she was passing the plow, she ran head-on into another snow plow heading the opposite way down the road.
The force of the impact sheared the plow blade off of the plow and bent it.
The woman suffered moderate injuries. The Colorado State Patrol tells News5 that accidents with snow plows usually result in serious injuries and that the woman driving the SUV was extremely lucky.
CSP is investigating the accident. Citations are pending.
The accident shut down Judge Orr Rd. for an hour.
