GRAND FORKS - Three Kindred, N.D., residents were injured when the pickup truck they were traveling in drove into the back of a state Department of Transportation snow plow truck on Interstate 29 on Sunday, Feb. 18, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported.

According to the Patrol's report:

Gabriel Bouschee, 32, Grand Forks, was driving a 2004 Mack truck southbound, plowing in the left-hand lane and median shoulder about 13 miles south of Grand Forks when the crash occurred about 12:05 p.m.

That's when a 2004 Nissan Titan being driven southbound in the left-hand lane by Sean Woller, 30, drove into the rear of the snowplow in whiteout conditions.

Woller, and his passengers Christina Lindquist-Cornog, 26, and William Eli-Cornog, 6, were taken by Altru Ambulance to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Boushee was not injured in the crash.

Charges are pending against Woller, the report said.

The Nissan had heavy front-end damage, while the plow truck had moderate damage to its rear, the report said.

The report noted that weather conditions included snow and blowing snow, with significantly reduced visibility that at times became white-out.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the accident occurred on Interstate 94.
