Drivers, Plows Dealing With Drifting Snow


It seems like the roads may never be clear of snow.

People all over KELOLAND have been running into blowing a drifting snows as they’ve gotten behind the wheel the last few days.

It was definitely the case Monday night in Corson County. The Corson County Sheriff’s Office posted a video on Facebook of Highway 12 west of McIntosh.

The drifts were already stretching into the lane and the wind was whipping snow across the road.

And as the snow covers the roads, the plows will be out.  It’s important to be careful when you drive near one.

On Monday, the South Dakota Department of Transportation said 26 plows have been hit by other cars so far this winter. But less than 24 hours later that number jumped to at least 27.

The Brule County Sheriff’s Office posted pictures of a damaged plow on Facebook Monday. A semi rear ended a plow near Kimball, causing both the plow and the semi to be damaged.

The post asks drivers to remember to move over and slow down when passing any vehicle displaying amber or yellow flashing lights.
