One person was killed in a collision between a car and a snowplow southeast of Grafton.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol said it happened around 12:30 PM Wednesday on I-29, about 20 miles southeast of Grafton.

Troopers say a southbound ND-DOT snowplow was pulling a plow trailer, pre-treating the road for icy conditions.

Authorities say the snowplow – with emergency lights activated -- was struck from behind by a Honda Accord.

The driver of the Accord suffered fatal injuries and was taken to Unity Hospital in Grafton. The driver was not identified.

A release from the Highway Patrol said a 44-year-old Drayton man was driving the snowplow, but no injuries were reported.
