Comcast Xfinity's repair trucks may have caused multiple slide offs and collision.

Filmed - 12/13/16

UPDATE PLEASE READ:  I wanted to clear up many questions and concerns people have had.  The cops were called immediately after the first slide off.  I called them personally myself and they were called again after the collision.  They arrived around 30-40 minutes after the collision. 

After the first Comcast truck appeared and the first slide off happened, we went to the top of the hill and slowed down traffic as much as we could. 

The first Comcast truck then left the scene.  You can see me at the top of the hill when he passes on the left of me.  I retrieved some yard signs to act as warnings and was at the top of the hill when the second truck arrived.  I then had the conversation with the second Comcast worker.  The individuals that slid off were asking what he said and I went down to tell them.  This is when the second truck pulled into the same location placing four cones down.  Moments later the accident happened.

My wife was in the front yard taking coffee and hot chocolate orders for the people stuck from the slide offs.  After she was almost hit, I was obviously more agitated.  Then is when I talked to the worker again and then one of the drivers that slid off moved the yard signs to block the road and redirect traffic around a community.

Just to review:
- I did call the police
- I did help slow down traffic
- Some drivers were going too fast for conditions
- The truck that hit the car was going way too fast and ran off after the accident
- I did not film this to try and get anyone fired
- I did not upload this to try and make it go viral
- I contacted Comcast about the situation before uploading the video.
- I let Comcast know I had additional footage
- UPDATED: Comcast has contacted me to apologize today 12/15/16
- Threats have been turned over to the police and will continue to be

There is much more video that shows all of what I explained that is not in this short 3 min piece.  I was concerned for everyone's safety including the workers.  Everyone needs to realize that this took place in about an hour time span.  You are seeing a small window of it.  To call for the heads of the workers, drivers, or us documenting it is just wrong.  Please stay safe out there... SLOW DOWN... and have a Merry Christmas.

Please read the description before commenting. Many of the same questions come up that are answered in the description update. Yes police were called after the first slide off. Yes we were at the top of the hill slowing down traffic. Yes people need to slow down.

So it's Comcast's fault that people won't drive the the proper speed during hazardous weather conditions??? GTFOH

Okay, people, YES some were driving too fast and whatever but as you can see in the video the guy for some reason couldn't handle being wrong. Just put out some more cones and you wouldn't need to fight or anything, it's not that hard. All of this just happens because people are so fucking stupid and can't handle being wrong or losing. They should just grow up and realize that they can lose and be wrong, but it still wouldn't mean that they were idiots.

Surprise, surprise! It's okay to lose and be wrong! Just fucking grow up!

Take a shot every time he says "cones"! 😊

They needed a flagging operation and someone stationed at the top of the hill to give proper warning. Comcast sucks anyway.

I seriously hope the comcast guys were fired...

Comcast should have had a sign up indicating that the road was blocked 1/2 mile prior to the road closer (Common sense). Anyone that was unable to stop in time most likely was driving too fast for the road conditions. In the end the responsibility is up to the motorist to insure they are driving a safe speed. Just because the sign says 40 MPH doesn't mean that in a snow condition you should drive 40. In closing I am wondering how many of those people had winter tires. Hmm something to consider.

too bad someone didnt slide off and into him.....

As far a Comast Xfinity is concerned, their "Customer Service" is just a perversion of social media.
kenwes69
fuckin people need to slow down ,,,,there's ice everywhere
Big$MoneyBoss
I think the crashes was caused by the workers what about you guys
MR.POSITIVE :D
My street is about 12 feet wide and comcast trucks do that all the time

That guy really wants some cones.

I got an xfinity ad before this 🙄

The facts as shown, people driving too fast! Comcast should of placed a sign at the top of hill saying work ahead one lane slow please. When people lose internet, TV, and phone they can be unbearable they don't want excuses just fixed. I don't take either side, but more precautions could of been taken. Surprised took police so long to respond.

All these people who have slide of the road have been driving two fast for the road condition, you can be stupid as it gets and you will still get driver licenses in USA, in Europe 70% of Americans wouldn't have driver license. Lets say there would be no comcast but a broken bus, car or even a stop sign, they still wouldn't stop because they didn't pay attention to the driving, if there is a hill and you can't see what's behind this hill you slow the fuck down. And when you know your car has shitty tires, you change them or go slow that's very simple. Driver have to be ready for anything.

I seriously hope the person from Comcast got put in jail

Comcast charges ppl anywhere from $150 up over $200 a month for svc. depending on you service. With that being said WHY wasn't a detail cop put in place when your closing a partial lane of traffic when there's only 1 lane for each direction of travel. I hope the cable Nazis are held liable for every single accident claim except for Cooter in his 1980 something Chevy p/u truck. Way too fast.

That pickup truck was flying though. 😄

Idiots who hired these people

It was comcast fault I don't ppl get that there was a hill there and as soon as you start coming down there goes a huge comcast truck with about 4 C O N E S and it was not enough time for ppl to adjust to the situation that is why they slid off the road. But the truck at the end was at fault for driving 100 mph and hitting the car.
Raymond Day
Were did this happen?
William Smith
The cops should have gave tickets to every car that crashed.
"LOL 40mph in icy weather! Let's do 60!"
Dale Campbell
the one question that I saw as funny is the tech saying "this is a fourty MPh road.. right"... sure... in ideal conditions... but these were NOT ideal conditions... granted... a lot of those cars (the black truck especially) was traveling way too fast for the conditions. .. Not saying the cable tech was right, he should have put out more advanced warning for the traffic given the conditions. ..
Internet Connection
There is a thing called common sense, regardless if youre following the law. "I have complied with the law of cones therefore the destruction in my wake is legal, my God offers no absolution for there is no sin committed." lol
Phillip Pullion
idiot drivers, going to fast in bad weather conditions. If they were driving at the proper speed then they would not be having accidents. MAYBE after seeing this video Comcast will provide them with signs stating work area to place further out for the STUPID drivers that cant drive right. It all comes down to the drivers driving that should be cautious, yes the workers should have been better at it, but they dont seem thrilled to be out there and possibly getting hurt cause of stupid drivers. parking his truck in someones yard puts them more at risk to getting hit as you seen how they slide, and someone else already took out the box they are working on.

Was he really applying dry road rules for cones on an icy road? What an idiot. The guy with the dash cam needs to make that video available to everyone that lost control coming up to where that idiot was working. But....I know....I know, it sucks being maintenance and keeping everyone's internet and phone service up....I get that.
Jxxx Hxxx
typical asshole comcast workers, don't care about anything going on around them except getting cable back on so the company can make that money. welcome to corporate America folks. true, some cars are also going too fast for conditions. other drivers are in lala land while they drive rather it be texting, talking, putting on make up, arguing with their lovely families while driving. either way, this whole thing is a disaster waiting to happen.

Jonathan caruso
How is it the service trucks fault all those retards are driving too fast for the road conditions
Patrick Gillespie
Shows what can happen when people do the bare minimum of what they need to. Good job on recording what happened.
blaga2005
Now those people atleast have cable to watch from the hospital. Its a win win situation, comcast gets more views, and the hospital gets more customers!
WnWINTER
Yeah, a job cost more than a life asshole
scottthewaterwarrior
I can see him considering it to be just a one off after the first car, but after the second? People may have been going too fast for conditions, but I would have put some cones out at the top of the hill, if nothing else to keep people from smashing into my work truck!

The drivers are idiots for driving like it's a bright and dry summer day. The Comcast workers are equally stupid for contributing to a deadly situation that could injure the to fast drivers as well as innocent people they hit.

A white truck parked in the middle of a snow, and ice covered road. Plenty of visibility, Four cones should work. lol

They caused nothing, people just need to pay attention.

I have never wanted to watch someone named Amish get hit by a car before, but this video has convinced me that I want everyone named Amish to get run over by a car.
Diego Catano
I was going to comment , but a looks like a lot of people already covered it .... next time be a part of the solution ... not the problem ... standing where all the accidents were happening didn't help anybody , placing your own cones where people were already crashed just so you could "keep rolling " why didn't you stand at the crest and place YOUR cones their ...
