MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is urging motorists to drive carefully and watch for snow plows that can be obscured by blowing snow.

Shumlin made the plea Monday after reports that at least four Vermont Agency of Transportation plows were hit by vehicles while clearing snow from the latest storm.

In a crash on Interstate 89 in Milton, the driver of a box truck that hit a state plow suffered non-life threatening head and leg injuries.

Shumlin urged drivers to stay away from other vehicles and give plow truck drivers the room they need to do their jobs.

Shumlin says the safest place on the road is a reasonable distance behind a plow.
