Woman Hospitalized after Getting Hit by Plow in Fargo

Despite being hospitalized, the woman did not suffer life-threatening injuries

FARGO, N.D. — A woman is in the hospital after she was struck by a snow plow outside of Hector International Airport.

Police say the plow was backing up and hit the woman near the airport’s east entrance around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The woman, who was a contractor hired by the airport, did not suffer life threatening injuries.

As winter continues, police say they want people to be mindful of their surroundings and not walk or drive too close to plows.

“It’s just important to make sure if you’re operating a motor vehicle or a plow, or if you’re a pedestrian, to make sure we’re keeping personal safety at the forefront of our minds, so make sure you double–check your surroundings before you make any sort of movement if you’re crossing the street or moving that vehicle,” said Jessica Schindeldecker of the Fargo Police Department.

Fargo Police responded to a similar incident a couple of weeks ago where a man was hospitalized after being struck by a plow on 42nd Street.
