On my way home from work yesterday, I was driving on the freeway feeling pretty good about my day….
The traffic was not that heavy and the beauty of the day relaxed me. Off to my right side, I saw a flatbed diesel truck hauling what appeared to be a huge piece off concrete that looked like a monument of some sort. As I continued driving, a huge piece of concrete came flying straight at me and I turned my head for fear it was going to go right through my windshield and hit me in the face. Luckily for me, it did not break through my windshield but after slamming into it, it bounced and went over my car. I can only imagine what happened to the car behind me.
A few seconds later, I took down the license plate number of the truck only to realize later there was nothing I could really do about it. There is now a huge, round, deep, crack on my windshield right in my view.
I was going about 80 mph at the time and I know if that huge piece of concrete would have ever made it through my windshield, I would have never survived the impact.
It was still a good day.
