Snow and ice falling from trucks is a consistent issue for drivers and trucking companies in Canada. With temperatures dropping below freezing, it is a very good idea to clean up the roof of your vehicle after a heavy snowfall, to reduce the risk of it freezing solid and then falling onto oncoming cars, like it happened in this video.

A couple driving near Moncton, New Brunswick, on November 30 approached a truck merging onto the highway just as a big chunk of frozen snow flew off of the truck, smashing the windshield on the passenger side. Authorities warned of the dangers of not cleaning the rooftops of vehicles, because the snow that freezes might form into ice and fall onto incoming traffic and cause incidents, just like it is the case in this video. As the ice falls off truck's rooftop, it lands directly onto the windshield of the incoming vehicle, causing it to smash!

Kevin McGraw said his wife, sitting in the passenger seat, was covered in shards of glass. He told Storyful that he pulled over to the right-hand side of the road and watched in the rear view mirror as the transport truck seemed to be pulling in behind him, but, he said, the truck then went around him and drove off down the highway.

The whole thing is like a scene from the Final Destination Franchise! Everything happens in a split second, you have to prevent yourself from blinking in case you miss the massive chunk of ice chipping off the block on the roof and smashing in the right-hand side of the windshield!
