Somebody Actually Got Killed by a Snowplow This Week

Don’t shed a tear for Fox 29’s Steve Keeley.

As we chuckle over Fox 29’s reporter Steve Keeley’s slapstick brush with snowbank tragedy, let’s take a moment to realize that snowplows actually can be quite deadly. The AP reports that a 72-year-old Reading man was struck by a plow Monday at 11:30 a.m. This just weeks after a pregnant lady was killed by a snowplow in Brooklyn. (The baby survived.) No GIFs of either incident is available. [AP]

    GIFs are not available for either incident? Why must you sound so flip?

    1. Proofread. It should read “No GIFs of either incident are available.” 2. Don’t be a dick. I’m glad there aren’t short clips of these poor people dying floating around the internet.

    In Lower Merion the snow plow are more polite and would never do such a thing. We have many personal injury attorneys who live here. Case closed!
