Snow plow caught driving the wrong way in Arlington

ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- Arlington officials say a snow plow driver who was caught on camera driving the wrong way down Military Road Monday morning has been removed from duty.

Local filmmaker Jason Berry filmed the snow plow, which he says forced his car into another lane where he lost control and did a 180. Berry said he then decided to follow the plow and take some video.

Dave Hundelt, Chief Operating Engineer, Water/Sewer/Streets Bureau Arlington County Department of Environmental Services, issued the following statement about the video:

"This is completely unacceptable behavior for snow plowing and it was in violation of Arlington County's plow driver practices and training.

"As soon as the County learned of the unacceptable behavior, we identified the driver and removed him from duty. We will be taking appropriate action with this employee.

"Safety is a priority for the County, and we encourage any driver issues or concerns to be reported to the police."
