Ok, any way you slice this story, it’s stupid.
At 2:00 a.m., a bunch of people were milling around downtown looking for rides. They started banging on random vehicles asking if they’d give them a drive. Now here’s where it gets confusing. The radio said a woman pounded on the window of a pickup truck which had the snowplough attached and asked for a ride, the driver said no, and then when he tried to move on, she either bent down to tie her shoe or fell in front of the truck’s wheels and was hurt. The paper says almost the same story, minus the plough part.
Either way, why in hell would you bang on random vehicles’ windows? Better still, why would you choose to stand in front of a pickup truck of all things demanding a ride? It’s even more stupid if it’s the truck with the plough! Get out of the way! Strange drunken fools I tell ya.
