Fargo police officer hit by alleged drunk driver during storm
A Fargo police officer whose squad car was hit by an alleged drunk driver was among the victims in a wave of crashes Monday as slick roads, drifting snow and poor visibility created perilous driving conditions.
Officer Grant Benjamin came across a vehicle stuck in the snow in the 5100 block of 40th Avenue South about 1:30 p.m. He parked his squad car in position to protect the people trying to get the vehicle unstuck, Sgt. Chris Helmick said.
