2x4 flies through drivers windshield

A video of a scary car accident is making its way around the web showing the driver’s point-of-view as a two-by-four kicks up from a trailer in front and smashes through her windshield. At first many thought the video was fake and was an April Fools prank… really?

Either way, the folks at Jalopnik spoke to Wendy Cobb, who is the driver in the video, and here is what she had to say about the whole incident.

I was actually taping two trucks doing a little ‘cat and mouse’ game and holding up traffic. (I always say I’ll send it to the companies they work for, let them know how they are representing the company, but I never do. Can’t help it – I’m in marketing so I always think about things like that)

The 2×4 was in the road, along with several others, but when the truck in front of me hit it, and then his trailer hit it, it just propelled it into me. I don’t know why I didn’t scream or cuss or cry, I guess just pure shock, I could barely form words to call 911. But I most definitely know how lucky I was. Damage was mostly the hood and windshield, again, very lucky.

Scary stuff here…hit the jump for the video.
