Icy windshield leads to crash involving North Mankato police vehicle
NORTH MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — Local law enforcement officials are stressing the importance of clearing your windshield of all snow and ice before hitting the roads.
A North Mankato police vehicle was struck by a motorist Wednesday morning whose vision was impaired by the frost on the car’s windshield.
The Minnesota State Patrol investigated the crash and reported that nobody was injured.
“Take the time to remove ice and snow and debris from your windshield. Give your car time to warm up so the defroster can keep your window clean, and, also, it would be a good idea to invest in some windshield washer fluid instead of the standard fluid that is available during the warmer months,” North Mankato Police Chief Ross Gullickson said.
Officials from the North Mankato Police Department advise drivers to give themselves extra time to ensure their safety, as well as the safety of other drivers on the road.
