KIESTER, Minn. (WCCO) — A 55-year-old Wells, Minn. man is in critical condition after the snow plow he was in was hit by a train, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the crash happened Friday afternoon along Highway 22 in Kiester, Minn., which is southwest of Albert Lea.

The snow plow was hit on its passenger side by a Union Pacific Train at an intersection that does have lights and an audible alarm, but no stop arms.

The train pushed the plow three-fourths of a mile before it was able to stop.

The plow driver, who has been identified as Bradley Bruegger, was air lifted to the hospital.

The crash is being investigated.
