Can't make it up: This DC tourist's electric car died in West Virginia, so coal miners pushed it all the way to their coal mine to get it a charge
· Sep 6, 2022 ·

This is one of the most beautiful stories I've ever had the pleasure of sharing with you on this site:


This is the EV movement in a nutshell, y'all.

Because without coal miners, your little ego-friendly EV is nothing.

And I thought in the commercials these things run from coast to coast on a single charge! I call fake news on that.

Anyhow, this is just absolutely glorious:

Some days are just better than others. Today at our mine off Corridor H an electric car from DC ran out of battery at the road entrance to the mine. Someone called one of our foreman and told him a car was broke down in the middle of our haul road. He went to investigate and found out they had indeed ran out of juice coming from DC to Davis for a get away weekend. He then went back to the mine and got guys to push the car to the guard shack so they could plug in to charge. They couldn't pull it because it was all plastic underneath and nothing to hook up to. So here are 5 coal miners pushing a battery car to the coal mine to charge up. If you look closely you can see our coal stockpile and load out in the background. This just shows you coal miners are good people and will go out of their way to help anyone friend or foe. Im honestly glad they ended up where they could get some help because they couldn't get a tow truck to come and this is out in the middle of nowhere. one guy even dropped off a Friend of Coal license plate when he left to go home. Lol #Godblesscoalminers

They gave the driver a Friend of Coal license plate!!



Give it up for our friends in the coal mines, y'all!
