It looks like the main stream hit him in the head to. I think thats a bit excessive in the speed for plowing.

I would have expected him to duck. But perhaps he was a little gimpy or couldn't believe the snowplow would really do that. I hope there was nothing sharp or hard in the stuff that hit his face. OUCH!

Wrong place at the wrong time. Thankfully he wasn't thrown through the window. Wet clothes will dry, major surgery takes a little longer.

I walk anywhere from 3-6 miles every day and I am always a little concerned about being hit and it almost happened this morning. Some little old lady was driving on the wrong side of the road and nearly clobbered me. I can't walk too much on the sidewalks because lots of them are still ice and snow covered. I always walk facing traffic. I never thought about being plowed over though! This poor guy. I feel bad for him and I'd really like to have a few minutes with that driver.

Karma says that plow driver will find a high manhole cover at that rate of speed and things will equal in two milliseconds!

I had a simular thing happen to me but it was a high speed train.
I heard the "large ice chunks about (5-15 lb a peice)" hitting the building infront of me. Quick thinking, I ducked behind a truck and avoided getting pummeled.
It was a near brown out moment for me.
