Wowza!  When I read the story I envisioned it covering one lane, not all three!  You get quite an ark when going 70 MPH in a snowplow.

What a farking maroon. Is his job protected by a union, cuz he needs to go.
 
2022-01-25 8:51:39 PM  
We are working with the customers affected by this incident.

translation: We will pay all the motorists off with big checks to shut them up because this union piece of shiat will not be disciplined and will be allowed to keep his job.

Getting involuntarily plowed quick and cold in Ohio?  Isn't that move called the Jim Jordan?

70 + 70 in opposite direction, 140

Don't drive that fast on ice

A couple people in this thread must be really unhappy at the growing outbreak of unionization across the country. Must be frustrating to see so many people throw off the shackles of lies and propaganda spewed by the right and a generation eager to bring actual quality of life to every worker.

He's on administrative leave until they do a fair and impartial investigation.

Then they'll hang him.

A cubic foot of ice is about 50 lbs.  50 lbs going 140 mph into your car is gonna leave a mark, even if it is slush.

Nope. No need for big checks, not with state lawyers who can repeat the mantra "sovereign immunity"

The highway patrol dashcams are starting to come out. Trail of destruction doesn't begin to describe it. Closest I got to a highway crash was when an 18-wheeler sprayed me with a lot of slush, but nothing like this. That's going to cost them quite a bit of money.

FTFA: "The Ohio Turnpike is managed by an independent company, not the Ohio Department of Transportation"

Meaning they were trying to cut costs by using likely non-union contractors, who don't know what the hell they are doing and now will end up costing way more due to all the impending lawsuits.
 
2022-01-26 12:34:31 AM  
This was done by a private company who is contracted to perform the operation.  So the "stupid union gubmint employee" crowd can stop their moaning.  If it were a government employee they'd be taking their sweet time, most likely.  This was a for profit corporation that was probably giving zero damns about the safety of their own employees or the public as much as they cared about their bottom line.

No, meaning the turnpike is under the management of the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission, not ODOT. The employees are probably Teamsters.

/the question here shouldn't be whether this driver keeps his job anyway; he should be in jail

It's obvious that he knew what he was doing. That's why he deserves a harsh punishment. He knew what he did could have caused a major accident. Would it be as "EPIC" if he killed someone? No one should ever fool around while driving, especially in bad weather. Have you ever been in an accident because of some fool like this doing something childish. He should be fired, arrested and locked away.

If he's union, he'll become a manager.

Right, because without unions, we can trust that companies will do the right thing.

I agree. A few morons getting to go on gardening leave is a very small price to pay for workers' rights overall.

You can still get fired even if you're in a union. Besides, he's not a cop.

Ohio salts roads, if that's what you mean. Rusts a car out in five years is you don't wash it regularly... like every week... including undercarriage...

Had a similar event driving up through Montana just south of Dillon. The difference was the plow was on the left hand shoulder doing around 60 to 65 without any lights whatsoever causing an absolute whiteout. In the early morning greyness I didn't realize the whiteout was happening because I thought it was just snow off the semi I was trying to pass....and then I saw the blade in my lower left vision (pinching me up against the semi) at the same time I started panicking about the blinding squall. A good rig, decent handling and a bunch of loud swearing saved that morning. Also, I wasn't asked to drive the rest of the trip into Spokane. Or back. Or ever again.

Holy crap, that must have been terrifying. My sister and I got caught in a really heavy downpour driving through Oklahoma one time, and a big pick-up lost control on the other side of the highway and went right through the median to crash into the fence, kicking up a massive amount of mud and grass that went high airborne and slammed into our windshield hard enough to rock our rental SUV. That shiat was scary enough without the death ice.

/My sister has nerves of steel in disaster situations and was thankfully the one driving
//Still needed to pull over for a hot minute after, though

Sounds like you handled that shiat well as you didn't wreck.

If one of the trucks was transporting a nuke he could have vaporized a whole city.
That didn't happen.  No one died either.

you hit a wall at 50. you was goin 50
a guy going 50 hits you head on and you are doing 50, what is the physics of the impact?

A hunnert.
Also:   Force = 1/2 times (Mass times (Velocity squared))
See that "squared" term?  That means a collision will be 4 times more forceful at only twice the speed.  2 cars hitting at 50mph each is like a car hitting a wall at 100mph, but that's 4 times more energy than a single car hitting a wall at 50mph.
