Here it is, the most Chicago news item of winter 2016 and also of human history: A Chicago Streets and Sanitation Department driver was shot at while clearing the streets in a snowplow on Sunday, according to ABC7.

No one was injured.

The incident took place around 2:30 p.m. in West Garfield Park, near the intersection of West Lake Street and North Kostner Avenue.

The issue began when the snowplow driver got into an altercation with the driver of a non-plow vehicle, who believed the snowplow driver was not driving fast enough.

Soon after, the snowplow driver heard shots fired in his direction, as the driver he had been arguing with sped away.

The only way this story could become more authentically Chicago is if the city releases dashcam footage of this incident 5 to 10 years from now. Or if it turns out the snowplow driver decompressed afterwards by taking a break at Al's Beef.
