NYC Mayor: City Should Pay For Vehicle Crunched By Tow Truck

Here’s an update to yesterday’s story about that New York City tow truck caught on camera repeatedly smashing into a snowbound Ford Explorer.

In a press conference, Mayor Mike “why did I run for a third term?” Bloomberg admitted the city’s culpability in the matter… well, sort of.

“I’ll leave it to the lawyers but I assume we probably are responsible if our plow hits them,” said the mayor. “I don’t know any reason why we wouldn’t be, but it’s a question for our lawyers and if you talk to our lawyer department, they’d be happy to give you an answer to that.”

If you haven’t watched the snowy demolition derby yet, here’s the clip:
