Moorhead man cited after hitting snowplow

A Moorhead man was cited after striking a snowplow on Interstate 94 near mile marker 9 on Monday.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the accident occurred at about 3:34 p.m.

Jon Lenthe, 64, was driving a passenger cargo van east on Interstate 94 when he attempted to pass a semi truck when he struck the snowplow that was also eastbound.

The cargo van needed a tow truck, but the snowplow was drivable.

No one was injured. Lenthe was cited for failure to use due care.
