Photos: Driver Escapes Death From Metal Beam Into Windshield On San Jose Freeway


steelA driver in San Jose should be thanking his lucky stars Friday evening following a freeway crash that could have been fatal, but somehow wasn’t.

The image is of a black BMW with what appears to be a metal beam impaled into the front windshield.

Firefighters said a metal tray loader flew off the back of a truck and lodged right between the two front seats barely missing the driver, who somehow managed to steer his car to the shoulder. He walked away with a scratch to his arm.

An image tweeted by San Jose Firefighters Local 230 simply read:

“Reminder Always be alert to your surroundings. Solo driver SB280 escaped with only a scratch.”

The accident happened around noon on southbound Interstate 280 near the Saratoga exit.
