A Town of Cross Plains snow plow truck that went off the road and landed on its top waited for crews to lift it with a crane Tuesday morning. A late afternoon snow storm on New Year’s Eve made travel treacherous.

CROSS PLAINS–At around 6 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, the Dane County Sheriff’s Department and the Cross Plains-Berry Fire Department and EMS were called to the 4000 block of Barlow Rd. in the Town of Cross Plains for a snow plow truck that had crashed. 

The snow plow from the Town of Cross Plains was clearing snow and salting during the snow storm which caused very slippery road conditions. As the driver of the snow plow truck was traveling northbound on Barlow Road, the road was extremely slick due to the slush and the truck slid off the roadway into trees to the west of Barlow Road. It came to final rest on its roof and the Cross Plains Fire Department had to extricate the driver who escaped with minor injury.

When the Cross Plains ambulance arrived on the scene, it stopped near the accident on a steep hill. The crew got out of the car to assess the accident, at which time, the ambulance slid down the icy hill and crashed into a large tree. No one was hurt in the incident.

Both the snow plow truck and the ambulance suffered significant damage in the accidents and will likely be totaled. The snow plow was removed with a crane on New Year’s Day.
