If you weren't already nervous when traveling behind a logging truck on the highway we're afraid these pictures might inspire some anxiety next time you spot one on the open road.
Joseph Gale and his wife were driving in Fulton, Mississippi on Thursday when a logging truck flipped over on the opposite side of the highway. Before they knew it one of every driver's worst nightmares came true when one of the logs the truck had been carrying flew across the median and through the front windshield of their minivan.
Amazingly Gale escaped with only a broken arm while his wife received 29 stitches on her head. Thankfully the couple had dropped off their children a few minutes before the accident. Both are expected to make a full recovery and understandably consider themselves very lucky to have escaped with their lives.
