BOSTON — A Massachusetts woman was shaken but not harmed after an ax flew off a truck driving down a highway and crashed into the windshield of the car behind it.
According to Massachusetts State Police, a landscaper driving a dump truck down Route 95 had failed to secure an ax in the back of the truck.
The ax got loose and broke the windshield of a car traveling behind it. The ax ended up being lodged blade-first into the car.
“Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield,” Massachusetts State Police wrote on Facebook. “The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn’t be?) but not injured.”
The truck driver was cited $200 for failure to secure cargo.
