    SHARON — A Chelsea man who allegedly “sideswiped” a state snowplow while its 20-year-old operator was attempting to turn off of a slush-covered section of Route 14 early Sunday morning was ticketed by state police for causing the accident.

    According to police, 69-year-old Glen Manning was driving a 2006 Subaru Forester on Route 14 shortly after 7:30 a.m. when he attempted to pass a state snowplow even as its driver, Devan Paradis, 20, of Gaysville was starting to make a left-hand turn into a parking lot so he could turn the plow around.

    The two vehicles collided with police reporting moderate damage to the passenger side and front end of Manning’s Subaru and damage to the front end and plow of the state truck. Neither driver was injured, they said.

    Manning was issued a ticket, but will not face any criminal charges in connection with the incident, according to police, who said motorists should use extra caution around plow trucks and emergency vehicles, especially when road and weather conditions are less than optimal.
