A man who was hit by a snow plow in northern Victoria says he was told to “stop complaining” and that he was “not doing his job”.
The man was on his way to a work meeting in a remote part of the north-west when he was hit with the plow, causing him to lose some of his foot.
He said the incident had left him with a “feverish headache” and he was in hospital for a few days.
Mr Muhan said he was driving on the southbound motorway at the time of the accident on February 4 when the plough struck the man’s vehicle.
“He had stopped to make a left turn onto the road and the ploughed into the right front of his car, leaving the right side of his left foot partially detached,” he said.
I was just completely in shock.” “
My foot was completely separated from the vehicle.
I was just completely in shock.”
Mr Mihan said the accident left him feeling “shocked and scared” and unable to walk or run for three weeks.
He has now lost about a centimetre in size and he said he will not be able to walk in the future.
Mr Sibek was one of four drivers who were on the road when the incident happened.
He had stopped at a traffic light when he saw the plows approaching, he said, and said the plOW did not stop.
He went to help the driver and was hit, causing his car to “collapse” in a “horrific” way, Mr Siba said.
The incident has now left the driver in hospital with a severe head injury.
He suffered multiple injuries including a fractured wrist, a dislocated shoulder, broken ribs, a broken pelvis and broken skull, and has been left with permanent damage to his spine.
Mr Zayas said he had received multiple letters of support from people who had been “stunned” by the incident.
“People have sent me messages and pictures of themselves with their feet stuck in the snow, and they’ve just been absolutely horrified by what happened,” he told ABC Victoria.
“They’re so shocked, they just feel like I’m in the back of a horror movie.”
He said he has contacted the Victorian Government and has put in a request for a new plow and will be meeting with the State Government about a replacement.
“There are some people who’ve already paid the price for what happened to them,” Mr Zayaas said.
