Officials in Shelby County say a county road department employee suffered only minor injuries following a rollover accident in a snowplow Wednesday. The Shelby County Sheriff’s say 45 year old Tracy Klein of Harlan was traveling east on County Road F-58 in a 1998 Mack snow plow when blowing snow blinded the driver. The plow drifted onto the south shoulder and was pulled into the south ditch.

Once in the ditch, the vehicle rolled over one and one-half times coming to rest on the driver side. The accident took place around 6:55am Wednesday about one half mile east of Elk Horn. The Elk Horn Fire Department responded and had to extricate Klein from the plow. He was transported to Myrtue Memorial Hospital for treatment.
