Plywood crashes through car, barely missing driver

A piece of plywood that came crashing through the windshield of a newer Volkswagen on an Ontario highway January 2 narrowly missed striking the driver and passenger, the CBC reports.

The collision between the debris and the last-gen VW Passat happened on Highway 410 in Brampton in the late afternoon.

“A loose piece of wood that was unsecured flew off another truck and struck another vehicle,” explained the Ontario Provincial Police’s Sgt. Kerry Schmidt.

Photos posted by the OPP show the plank of wood lodged right between the front seats, barely missing the driver. Both the driver and passenger were sent to hospital for minor injuries.

The OPP are using the incident to remind people to properly secure materials being transported by car or truck.
