Road Crew Paints Over Dead Raccoon (Seriously)
You can thank motorcyclist Sean McAfee for snapping the above photo before the city had a chance to clean it up. In McAfee’s words: “I almost crashed I was laughing so hard”
According to Pennsylvania Department of Transportation spokesman John Ambrosini, generally there is a crew foreman who ensures the road ahead is clear of debris and dead animals before the paint truck arrives, today however there was no foreman on the job.
Ambrosini said that the equipment used was too large to turn around in traffic but that the crew did try and stop the paint gun before reaching the carcus.
