I_Am_Weasel: The city also a salt truck to the area.

Because of accidentally.

The icy covering the road was so widespread that even the police had trouble getting close to the scene

FTFA Then a 2012 Nissan Rogue being driven downhill struck the Liberty and collided with the city salt truck, which was coming up the hill.

Tell me about it. I've seen my neighbour's gas bill.

Going through someone else's mail is a Federal offense...

theorellior: MerelyFoolish: And of course I'm up hill from him.

Could be worse. You could have been down the hill from him. That's where all the cars end up.

That's not "worse". That's "better" because, you cars.
