MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A state road construction worker was nearly struck by a pick-up truck that drove through a work site Monday morning in western Minnesota.
The Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office says a 78-year-old Spicer man allegedly drove into four orange warning barrels at about 11:31 a.m. on the 71/23 Highway near Willmar, before striking a concrete cutting saw that was being used by a Minnesota Department of Transportation worker.
The man drove off, but was soon stopped by another MnDOT worker. No one was hurt. The sheriff’s office did not identify the driver.
