One Man Survived A Random Accident On The Highway, All Thanks To His Steering Wheel
Many of us spend so much time driving that we forget just how dangerous it really is.
If you think about it for a moment, though, you’ll realize that driving is one of the riskiest things anyone can do. Despite advances in safety technology, car accidents still account for a huge percentage of deaths in the U.S. every year.
Usually, you can stay out of trouble by driving carefully. Sometimes, though, you find yourself as the target of a freak accident or twist of fate, like Redditor sames6840‘s friend did a few years back.
Sames6840 said his friend called out of work and sent him these pictures to explain why. That’s a piece of a semitruck that fell off onto the highway and was kicked up by another car.
That piece of metal then flew at a high speed straight through his friend’s windshield.
The only thing that saved his friend’s life was the tough-as-nails steering wheel. It deflected the piece of metal.
While his friend survived unscathed, the person sitting in the passenger seat received a small, but nasty head wound.
That looks like it hurt, but it’s much better than having your face caved in from a flying piece of metal on the road.
