NYC sanitation crew snow blunder
Tow truck and loader vs. parked Ford Explorer – Click above to watch the video after the jump

First, we'd like to go on the record as saying that we appreciate the people who keep our streets clean as much as the next guy. But let's face it: working for a sanitation department doesn't always require a finely honed intellect. Still, the incident caught in this video footage sinks to new lows.

With storms ravaging New York City and its surrounding areas, one rather large front-end loader somehow managed to get stuck in the snow and had to be pulled out by a tow truck, so city workers got to it. Just one problem: it was on a city street in between parked cars. But as you can see from the video, that didn't seem to concern the sanitation department personnel on the scene, to the unfortunate destruction of one snow-covered Ford Explorer parked adjacent. Follow the jump to watch the cringe-inducing footage for yourself, just be mindful of the explicit language. Thanks for the tip, Stan!
