A truck with a plow attached to it struck and killed a pedestrian in the road Thursday night in central Minnesota. 

According to the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office, the crash happened at 8:38 p.m. on the 24000 block of County Road 19, which is in the Brainerd Lakes Area. 

A 24-year-old man from Merrifield, Minnesota, was driving the pickup when it hit a 51-year-old man who was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim has been identified as Michael Paul Donnay, of Merrifield. 

Road conditions and visibility were "very poor" at the time of the crash, the sheriff's office notes. Central Minnesota was hit hard by a snowstorm on Thursday, with locations around the Brainerd Lakes Area picking up a foot or more of snow.
