An Elroy man was uninjured when the pickup truck he was driving entered a snow-filled ditch.  The deputy said last Thursday afternoon, December 20, 2012, 68-year old Lavern Weiland was traveling south on Highway 80 near 37th Street E. in the Town of Clearfield.  Weiland lost control of the 2004 Ford F150 truck on the snow covered roadway.  The pickup spun around and landed in the snow-filled ditch causing Weiland to be trapped.  The New Lisbon Fire Department was dispatched to the scene, but Weiland was able to get out when the pickup was moved by a tow truck.  He was uninjured.
