Town of Oxford plow damaged in bridge accident

OXFORD – A Town of Oxford plow truck was seriously damaged Tuesday after its blade got caught on a raised section of a bridge, causing it to crash into a nearby guardrail and roll over.

Town of Oxford Superintendent of Highway Timothy Tefft said the 2005 10-wheel International truck suffered significant damage and may have to be scrapped pending a consultation with the municipality’s insurance carrier.

He also reported that the driver, a 36-year veteran of the town’s highway department, was not seriously injured. “Shaken up, banged around, but he’s not too bad off, considering,” said Tefft.
