Man’s Life Saved by Poorly Plowed Streets


Many New Yorkers have probably experienced accidents, slippage, and cases of Shoveler's Shoulder due to today's snowy icefall. But do you know who it was awesome for? The dude who was found bound and gagged in the trunk of someone's BMW this morning! According to the Post:

Around 9:40 a.m., the BMW, sliding on the icy roadway, rear-ended a livery cab at the intersection of 10th Avenue, Dyckman Street and Harlem River Drive in Inwood, said cops. The BMW’s driver tried to back his car away from the crash. But unable to get any traction in the snow, he jumped out of the car and fled on foot. When cops arrived, they noticed the BMW’s rear seat had been pulled up. So they pulled the seat all the way out, and saw a man tied up in the trunk. The man, who was unconscious, had head trauma, said police sources.

The unidentified man has been taken to the hospital, where he is now in stable condition. Congratulations, Bloomberg administration. You may have screwed up last time, but this time you saved a life.
