Plow throws snow and ice through windows of restaurant

Plow Throws Snow and Ice Through Windows of Restaurant

One of the last places you might expect to see snow is INSIDE a restaurant. "Fox & Friends" explains how one driver ended up making that happen last Thursday.

'The moment when a speeding snow plow slams a mountain of snow into that New York City restaurant. The impact shattering windows - it hurt customers and caused $50,000 worth of damages.'

According to the Daily Mail, the nightmare occurred at Exo Cafe in Queens, New York.

WNBC reports workers inside the restaurant said the impact was so loud they thought a bomb had actually gone off. The restaurant's manager told the station about the incident.

'The vestibule was about five feet out here, and it just came in, hit this, knocked these people off. I appreciate everything that the sanitation department does, but this was pure negligence.'

WCBS notes the operators of the plow that allegedly threw all that snow, ice and even a garbage can are facing "disciplinary action" for what happened. Four people were sent to the hospital after being injured by the impact, but, fortunately, no one was killed.

'Had anyone been standing out front reading Exo's outdoor menu, managers fear this terrifying surveillance video would have ended with a fatality.'

According to WCBS, no charges have been filed so far.

What a plow is moving the driver has little control over the force of the snow. If he was going a little fast the snow mixed with sleet and ice will take off. But this I do not think was intentional. It's easy to point the finger at somebody. I hope you don't use these guys as scapegoats. But then again the Commissioner is a redheaded headhunter. He always was he does remember when he was behind the truck is lucky if you can stand up straight.

Chances are, there are too many roads to be plowed, and not enough people to drive the plows. These poor guys are probably plowing round the clock trying to keep up. Of course, the budget probably doesn't allow for the hiring of more drivers, so this guy was probably driving faster, hoping to get done so he could go home. Not a safe alternative but, if this is the case, you can't really blame him. I'm just glad no one was seriously hurt.

Wow. Way to reach back to the 1980's for that completely irrelevant insult.
