Irony Update

Thanks to Lauren Bettinger for the link.

Corvallis Gazette Times: Community News: "A local Oregon Department of Transportation worker was in fair condition Tuesday after he lost control of a de-icing truck on an icy stretch of Highway 99W and the vehicle rolled.

Jerry Atkinson, who works out of ODOT’s Corvallis office, was driving south on Highway 99W near Herbert Avenue at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday when his truck slid on the ice and into a ditch before rolling, according to Benton County Sheriff reports.

ODOT spokesman Joe Harwood said Atkinson had noticed a few vehicles that had gone off the road ahead of him and started to slow down. As he applied the brakes the truck started to spin on a patch of ice."
