  • A DelDOT snowplow driver suffered a minor injury today after the plow he was driving on I-95 overturned.   The incident happened at 10:49 a.m. as Charles Purnell, 33, drove a 2004 Sterling dump truck on the right shoulder of northbound I-95, at the Airport Road exit. As he plowed the shoulder, the passenger-side tires of the vehicle entered a ditch on the side of the roadway, causing Purnell to lose control of the truck.   As the vehicle continued north while Purnell attempted to regain control, the plow struck the guardrail, and the vehicle overturned onto its passenger side.   Purnell was transported to Christiana Hospital by ambulance. He was treated for a minor injury and released. He was not cited.
