Watch a Snow Plow Shatter Windows, Injure Patrons at Queens Restaurant

In the above grainy surveillance footage, a New York City snow plow drives down Austin Street, in Forest Hills, Queens, past the Exo Cafe, and all hell breaks loose. It looks like a small bomb going off. According to police, the plow struck a garbage can and sent it through the restaurant’s windows, sending three patrons to the hospital with minor injuries. “We were really upset about what happened. We thought it was complete negligence,” said Elias Kalogiros, the cafe’s owner. “If somebody was standing inside of the vestibule…they would have got hurt or even died.”
