a plank of wood ends up in the windshield of a car

On the highway, any loose object can fly away and turn into a deadly projectile. Two American friends almost had the unpleasant experience of it on a highway in Ohio …

Kim Awada and her passenger seated next to her in the passenger seat had the fear of their life. While driving in a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SUV on an Ohio highway, they were passed by a pickup truck carrying ladders and long wooden planks in its in it.

Suddenly, two of them, certainly badly attached, flew away. The driver swerved to the left to avoid them! Unfortunately, one of the flying boards pierced the Mitsubishi windshield to finish its race against central armrest !

Incredible luck!

Fortunately, the board did not hit anyone and none of the passengers were injured. This accident which could have turned out to be fatal was highlighted by Ohio State Highway Patrol, the local highway police.

The driver of the pickup may have been overtaken by a patrol. The latter was obliged to better secure his equipment and at the same time received a summons to appear to the court. He only risks a fine between 120 and 160 dollars, or between 100 and 135 €. That is not expensive paid for a distraction that could have cost the lives of two people.

Check out the video of this plank of wood ended up in the windshield of a car driving on the highway.
