DENVER — One driver died after a crash involving a pickup truck and a Denver International Airport snow plow late Wednesday.

The snow plow was driving northbound on Queensburg Street and the truck was moving southbound, Casillas said. The truck lost control due to the road conditions. The plow driver tried to avoid a crash, but the pickup ended up hitting the snow plow, he said.
