A Massachusetts Woman is lucky to be alive after a 4″ x 4″ wooden post impaled her windshield.

Holyoke Woman Escapes Serious Injury
This morning, just after 11:00 a.m., a 67-year-old woman from Holyoke was traveling north on Interstate 91 in Springfield when a 4×4 wood post came through her windshield.
The wood post is believed to have fallen off off of another vehicle. It was then run over by a tractor-trailer, sending it through the air and into the Subaru windshield.
We are thankful the woman was not injured, but would like to remind all motorists to ensure all loads be properly secured. This incident could have had a fatal outcome.

She should go buy a lottery ticket as soon as possible. The rest of us should make sure, and police should enforce, that all cargo is well secured. Be it on the roof, on a trailer, or inside, anything can become an instant moving projectile.
