SNOW PLOW DRIVER ARRESTED

A western Massachusetts snowplow driver has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs after a collision that injured two people riding an all-terrain vehicle.

 

State police responded to Route 122 in Huntington at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

 

There they found that a pickup truck with a snowplow attached had collided with an ATV with two 19-year-old men aboard. The ATV riders were taken to a Springfield hospital with what were described as serious but not life-threatening leg injuries.

 

The plow driver, 36-year-old Richard Smith, of Worthington, was charged with two counts of operating under the influence _ one for alcohol one for drugs. Police did not disclose which drug.
