Driver struck by flying road reflector

FINDLAY, Ohio – Authorities say a snowplow clipped an orange road reflector off a rural road in northwest Ohio, sending it flying through the windshield of a minivan and injuring the driver.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s office said the reflector struck the 53-year-old driver of the van on Thursday morning.

Media reports said the driver, Philip Beatty of Findlay, was flown to a Toledo hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately available.

Investigators said the road reflector was in the middle of the road when it was hit by the snowplow and flew into the air.
