GRIMES (KWWL) -

An Iowa man gets the ride of a life time thanks to the Iowa Department of Transportation.

Mason Rumpf from Johnston has a passion for snow removal and is known for plowing his neighbors driveways with a plow attached to his wheel chair. Rumpf has cerebral palsy, but he doesn't let that stop him.

After a Grimes DOT employee saw his story he set up a time for Rumpf to get in the driver's seat. Rumpf was able to operate a simulated snow plow.
