A Chicago Streets and Sanitation garbage truck driver suffered a heart attack Saturday after his vehicle became stuck in alley snow and he tried to dig it out, according to an eyewitness.
Many Chicago residents were venting their frustration Friday with the pace of the city’s efforts to clear the streets of snow.
City officials said Friday that its snow plows were still “working as hard as they can” to clear the city’s side streets, but said that plows would not be sent to clear the city’s alleys.
Mayor Richard M. Daley on Thursday praised the efforts of city workers in digging out from this week’s blizzard, but said “we still have a long way to go.”
With main roads now clear and passable throughout Chicago, snow plows are working to clear the buildup from the blizzard from side streets.
If you’re waiting for your block to be plowed so you can get your car out, you’ll likely have to be patient for a while.
