MALTA, NY- Two state Department of Transportation plow trucks working on the Adirondack Northway (I-87) were struck less than an hour apart on Saturday by motorists who were charged with drunken driving, State Police said.

The first accident came at 7:36 p.m. in the southbound lanes between exits 12 and 13 when a pickup truck driven by Robert J. Clemente Jr., 26, of Troy, stuck the plow, troopers said. The plow had its hazard lights on when Clemente ran into the blade, shearing off the roof of his pickup, police said. He was taken to Glens Falls Hospital with minor injuries. Clemente was charged with DWI and must show up in Malta Town Court at a later date, police said. The plow driver was not injured.

The second accident was at 8:20 p.m. in the northbound lanes between exits 11 and 12 when a car ran into the rear of the plow. There were no injuries; the driver of the car that struck the plow was charged with DWI at the scene, said troopers, who did not have information about the driver late Saturday.

That's the problem with drunks they take things too literal, getting plowed is just an expression.
