>Officials said a man driving an SUV ducked to avoid getting hit by a metal beam that pierced through the windshield on southbound Interstate 280 in San Jose last Thursday.
>The piece of metal sticking out of his windshield somehow got loose from a truck he was following on I-280.
>The driver said he saw the metal coming, but couldn't veer left or right because there were cars around him, so he ducked to avoid getting hit.
>Firefighters said he walked away with just a scratch on his arm.
>Officials said the owner of the truck will get a ticket for spilling a load.
Technology is amazing the windshell only broke where the metal beam went trought a normal glass would have scattered into pieces and the driver could had his throat cut by one small piece and died.

Are you me?
I always had the idea of a truck's wheel breaking off. Imagine the wheel of a truck coming straight for you. that shit is terrifying. I'm also a new driver and so when I see a flatbed truck with beams and shit, fucking switch lanes and bolt.
>>The driver said he saw the metal coming, but couldn't veer left or right because there were cars around him, so he ducked to avoid getting hit.
>a metal beam suddenly comes hurling through the air to your face
>"Maybe I should veer to avoid getting hit"
>"But wait, I have cars on both my sides, I wouldn't want to cause another accident"
>"Ok, then I should just DUCK a bit to avoid getting my head bashed in"
>get out of it with just a scratch
