It was an “Oops” moment for a Grant County snow plow driver Wednesday when he accidentally knocked over a power pole while plowing snow.
Gary Heiny of Gas City told Grant County Sheriff’s deputies that he was plowing snow on County Road 800 East near Van Buren and was trying to turn his rig around when he backed into an I & M power pole. The pole fell onto the snow plow, doing an estimated five-thousand dollars damage.
No one was injured in the accident.
