GRANDIN, N.D. — A Fargo man ended up inadvertently “plowing” a short section of Interstate 29 in Cass County when the chisel plow he was pulling with a tractor struck an overpass.

The Highway Patrol says the man was traveling from a field near Grandin to a Horace-area farm midday Tuesday when the 16-foot-tall plow hit the bottom of an overpass. The bridge wasn’t damaged, but the impact pushed the plow spades into the roadway and resulted in some deep gouges to the surface.

The driver wasn’t injured, but he was cited for violating height restrictions.
