Offbeat: BMW driver avoids being impaled by metal in a freak accident

The elaborate and tragic deaths of the victims of the Final Destination movies were exactly that, elaborate to the point of being outlandish and unlikely.

But as reality has shown, freak accidents do occur as one BMW driver learned and was able to survive a Final Destination-like accident by avoiding from being impaled by a giant slab of metal.

It happened in Saratoga, California, where the story reads, a large metal ramp crashed through the windshield of an unassuming BMW X5 driver on I-280 southbound.

The officials reported that the BMW was following a vehicle carrying the ramp, and the ramp fell off the truck, bounced on the freeway and went right through the windshield. The driver miraculously survived without a scratch.

The X5 on the other hand had to be towed from the scene.

We hope he bought a lottery ticket later that day.
