Close Call....Road Debris
So yours truly is on his way to work doing the speed limit on I-595 when I notice the vehicle in front of me running over something on the road and the object suddenly taking off high up in the air. Next thing I know... BAM!
I kept my wits enough not to lose control of the truck and park safely. I am telling you that seeing the pointy side of that piece of metal aimed at my face was not one of my best moments.
I was showered form head to lap with very small glass fragments, Thank God I wear glasses.
I called work (sorry, I aint making it today) Florida Highway Patrol and the Insurance company. Filed a report and a claim, got a tow truck. This also was my first time facing an unknown LEO and carrying a weapon. Although not required in Fla, I informed the trooper and he was cool with it and very professional regarding my well being which I appreciated.
The embedded item, according to the tow truck driver, is a chainsaw blade or whatever the heck the chain rides on a chain saw. It is about 18 inches long and 2 inches wide.....and if I ever find the owner of it he is gonna have it embedded somewhere board rules do not allow me to specify.
