FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a snowplow clipped an orange road reflector off a rural road in northwest Ohio, sending it flying through the windshield of a minivan and injuring the driver.
The Hancock County Sheriff's office says the reflector struck the 53-year-old driver of the van on Thursday morning.
Media reports say the driver, Philip Beatty, of Findlay, was flown to a Toledo hospital. His condition wasn't immediately available.
Investigators say the road reflector was in the middle of the road when it was hit by the snowplow and flew into the air.
