What's More Terrifying Than Lumber Flying Through Your Windshield? Probably Nothing

A man in Meridian, Idaho this morning was seriously injured after living through a nightmare scenario for many of us: a giant piece of lumber came flying through his windshield while he was driving on the highway. You can't see it because Internet, but I'm cringing as I type this.

KVTB in Idaho reports that the unnamed man was driving on Interstate 84 around 8 a.m. local time when a board possibly came loose from a truck and crashed through his windshield. He was badly injured, police told the TV station.


Now, the Idaho State Police are looking for clues as to how this happened. Anyone with information is asked to call them. No word in the story if they will press charges against the driver who loosed the board, but I could see that happening, especially if they didn't stop to render aid.

Are you guys as afraid of this as I am? It's happened before and seems terrifying. How do you even avoid something like this?
