DOUGLAS COUNTY, Colo. -- Traffic continues to get worse and it can be dangerous when crashes occur, yet there has been an ongoing effort to get those crashes out of traffic lanes and onto the shoulder.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is implementing a new plan, part of the 'quick clearance' initiative by training plow drivers to push crashed cars out of the way of traffic.
"It keeps us safer," said Sergeant Chris Washburn. "It also prevents secondary accidents."
Drivers from Douglas County Public Works Operations have been going through training at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Center near Chatfield Reservoir.
