Out-of-control snowplow slams cars in Kiryas Joel

KIRYAS JOEL -

An out-of-control snowplow was captured on video barreling through several cars at a busy intersection in Kiryas Joel during Wednesday’s snowstorm.

A town of Monroe snowplow driver couldn't stop and hit two cars as it careened through the intersection of Lemberg Court and Acres Road.

Authorities say all four people involved, including the truck driver, were uninjured.

Officials say the accident could have been much worse given the number of pedestrians and other cars nearby. They also say that a school bus, dropping off kids had just left the intersection moments before.

State police say the driver was not issued any tickets and that slick roads were to blame.
