    Two things:

    "My head hit the windshield". Is that even possible wearing a seat belt?

    "They're looking into leads.......anyone selling a bent up plow". Poor Bird is gonna get questioned and have no idea why!

    seems odd that no one stopped.

    I like how half of the comments are assuming the plow guy was drunk. Do people really think that we all go out and get hammered before we go to work?

    It would be ironic if he came into the lane and hit the plow. Seems fishy no one stopped to help him.

    I know that street ,most people are doing 40+ on it. You hit someone head on like that,your plow truck would of been spinning out to.

    I plow in the winter and even I'm skeptical of most other plow drivers. especially being a member on this site and all the "bragging" guys seems to do about how many hours straight they worked with no sleep. like its impressive.

    If he got hit by a plow truck, that front tire would be flat for one, and two he would have never wounded up in the ditch if he got hit by the plow. His truck would have spun around.

    x2 I'm calling BS on this one- I'd put money on THIS guy claiming to be the victim actually having been on the phone, distracted by his kids, etc., having hit something, and blaming it on a "blue plow truck with a red plow"- really narrows it down :rolleyes:

    He said it was a dark blue pickup with a red plow......Hey GV don't you run dark blue pickup and red plows?:rolleyes:

    Sounds fishy and the damage to the SUV doesn't add up.

    I just don't believe that there was traffic there that watched a guy get hit head on by a snow plow and they just drove on around him and didn't stop.

    the story does sound fishy but I can believe no one stopped. people don't wanna get involved now a days.

    Real easy way to tell. If they look at the front of the SUV hit there better be some red streaks where the two vehicles traded paint. There is no way that an impact like that could happen without swapping some paint

    I hope you remembered to remove all of the old paint down to the primer before you shot the yellow. :)

    Funny, you guys are saying what I was thinking when I read this yesterday.... smells like insurance scam to me.

    If both vehicles were doing 40+ you bet that airbags are going off. That plow truck is also getting tossed around in some way and not just driving off unless it's a dual axle municipal rig with some real weight behind it, and then the damage would have been even worse! If his head hit the the windshield there is no way he even had a seatbelt on.
