Newscaster Nearly Gets Plowed by Fast-Moving Snow Plow [VIDEO]

Let me begin by saying this. When winter storms approach I am on the lookout for the snow plows, the salt trucks, all of them. I look forward to their emergence in times of emergency. It always makes me feel better.

But they can move in those vehicles a lot better and a lot quicker than the rest of us can. And that makes sense.

Okay, Sunday night, I was on Old Hartford Road at the Breckenridge Street intersection. I was stopped at a red light. A truck came over that hill just before the cemeteries and it had what looked like 50 lights on it. It was like Close Encounters, minus the mashed potato sculpture.

So, I thought, “Cool, they have arrived.” But this one was really moving and came up on me really quickly. With visibility not being the greatest at the time, I wasn’t sure if this dude was going to be able to stop in time. And I’m sure would have, but, I got out of his way, just the same. His job, at the time, was far more important than anything I was doing.

As you can see in the following video, when the bad winter weather hits, these drivers get down to business and it’s best to stay out of their way.
