I was out early this morning Snow Storm Chasing for The Weather Channel when I heard about a snow plow crash in Minneapolis. Turns out a snow plow driver raised the back of the truck up to adjust the salt. But in doing so, they struck a bridge. The truck kept going but the back of the truck bed stopped and was ripped off.
