A truck driver shared terrifying video of encountering a roadway obstruction shortly before a flying brick shattered his windshield.
The video was captured in Saint Michaels, Arizona, and shared on Tuesday, December 22, by Facebook user Jason Mennifee.
Mennifee says that the incident began when he spotted a wheelchair and a case of beer in the roadway as he was driving at night.
As he was about to phone the police to report the obstructions in the roadway, a person standing on the shoulder of the roadway threw a brick at his truck, shattering his windshield.
Mennifee said that the incident has almost certainly ruined his chances of making it home for Christmas. “….Lost my load bc I can’t drive legally, 1k deductible for insurance and worst of all….I won’t be home for Xmas unless a miracle happens. I live by the the philosophy that everything happens for a reason but I seriously can’t make sense of this. Thankful to be alive and physically unharmed bc things could’ve EASILY been uglier but….” he wrote.
In the video below, you can see the brick hit the truck at the 1:28 minute mark.
