Driving Danger: Beware of Flying Objects
Metal Pipe Smashes Through Windshield, Nearly Kills Woman

March 24, 2007 — A Utah woman is fighting for her life this morning after a metal pipe smashed through her windshield and into her face as she drove down the highway.

Brenda Shaw was driving down a Utah interstate when, without warning, an eight-foot metal pipe reportedly kicked up by the car in front of her came flying through her windshield.

"The bar penetrated just left of the nose through the cheekbone and it came out through just below the base of the skull," said Shaw's husband, Kelly Shaw.

Incredibly, she survived, but others haven't been so fortunate.

In 1998, a metal bar on the Long Island Expressway flew through the windshield of "All the President's Men" director Alan Pakula, killing him.

"There are about 25,000 crashes a year attributed to vehicle road debris," AAA spokeswoman Michele Mount said.

Now wait a minute...TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND ACCIDENTS PER YEAR DUE TO ROAD DEBRIS...AND NINETY ONE PEOPLE DEAD!
I myself have fallen victim to this twice in the time I've been licensed to operate a motor vehicle.

Where are the laws and national Rosie O'Donnell mobilization of street sweepers?!1

P.S. - Bruce if you haven't already you might post this in the OT Gun Nuts thread of old that I used to continually bump with firearm facts, statistics, and applied CCW incidents. Myself I'm forwarding this to my wife, 'Pollyanna', we gotta go out and get us all welders face shields and lace up a tennis net behind the windshield to catch flying road debris and protect our faces from zee flying killuh screws!
