Driver Survives Steel Beam Falling Off Truck And Smashing BMW’s Windshield
A San Jose driver narrowly escaped a potentially fatal injury on Interstate 280 Friday afternoon, impressing even San Jose firefighters, who tweeted out a photo of a long metal tray sticking out from the front of the man’s car.
Shortly after 2 p.m., the driver of a black BMW was going southbound on I-280 when the metal beam fell off of the back of a nearby truck and went through the windshield, said Cpt. Christopher Salcido, a San Jose Fire spokesman.
The driver pulled over to the right of the road, and escaped with only a slight scratch.
“Had the person been a little more to the right, it would have impaled him,” Salcido said. “It looks like he not so much dodged a bullet, but dodged a large beam of metal.”
This guy is BEYOND lucky!
