- A Florida driver was showered with broken glass after the windshield shattered
- The pickup was traveling on Interstate 95 when a crowbar flew through the glass
- Daytona Beach fire officials said the pickup was behind a semi that drove over the crowbar, causing it fly into the air
- Incredibly, there were no injuries as a result of the freak occurrence
A driver from Florida is counting their blessings after a crowbar flew through the windshield of their car – piercing the glass just inches away from their body.
Authorities in Daytona Beach say the driver is extremely ‘lucky’ after the metal pole smashed through the glass as they were driving.
The metal rod ended up next to the steering wheel and would have surely killed or at the very least severely injured whoever was driving, had the pole ended up inches either way.
A driver was showered with broken glass after the windshield was shattered by a crowbar
The metal rod came perilously close to the driver and was lodged just behind the wheel
The pictures show the crowbar completely smashed through the windshield on the driver’s side.
Incredibly, the person driving the pickup truck, who has not revealed their name, was unhurt by the projectile.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the crowbar flew off from the back of a semi truck that was in driving front of the pickup, causing it fly into the air.
FHP spokeswoman Kim Montes told News 6 that the driver was hit by broken glass, but will be fine.
‘This happens all the time,’ said Montes about debris flying of the road.
Authorities say this kind of thing happens fairly frequently when debris falls off other vehicles
