Mass. plow driver charged with OUI

Posted: Updated:

HUNTINGTON, Mass. (AP) - 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.

Police say Smith was a private plow contractor. He could not be reached.
