A driver in Kentucky was in for a rude awakening after seemingly trying to run over a snowman – only to hit the tree stump underneath.
Cody Lutz built the snowman over the weekend with family in Petersburg, Kentucky, about half an hour from Cincinnati, Ohio. He told Fox affiliate WXIX-TV he, his fiancée and future sister-in-law were playing in the snow when they decided to construct the large “Frosty.”
“We were playing in the snow; she’s from Mississippi so this is the most snow she’s ever seen in her entire life. I’m from Buffalo so this is no big deal,” Lutz said. “I love the snow!”
The trio used a tree stump as the base for Frosty, and covered the exposed bark with snow.
When Lutz returned home from work on Monday, he spotted tire tracks stretching throughout his yard to the base of the snowman.
“Instant karma!” Lutz told the news station, adding someone apparently tried to run over the 9-foot-tall snowman before hitting the tree.
He said the situation was “hilarious,” and added, “What goes around comes around, in good ways and bad ways. So, I guess everyone learns a valuable lesson here from Frosty.”
