ODOT Says Distracted Driving Leading to Plow Crashes

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Even though Meteorological Winter ends in 15 days, AccuWeather indicates we still have some snow and ice ahead of us.

So ODOT is again sounding the advice about driving near and around snow plows.

There have been 16 accidents involving state plows this year.

Transportation Press Secretary Matt Bruning believes distracted driving is the primary cause.

Surprisingly, there have been 24 total crashes involving ODOT crews so far this year.
