Here is another gem in the collection of dash cam videos, where everything happens in the blink of an eye! Keep those lids peeled, because you might just miss it! The footage shows a vehicle driving behind a long semi, when a slab of ice breaks of the trailer's roof and smashes into the windshield of the car that's recording! The glass shatters all over, but luckily doesn't crumble and cause further damage.

The driver says: "I was driving down the I-90 around Batavia, NY on my way home to Buffalo, NY when ice flew off the top of a tractor trailer giving me no time to respond. The ice smashed the window up near the roof line. If it were a couple inches lower it would have come through the window and caused serious injury. This was by far the scariest moment in my lifetime where everything slowed down and I saw my life flash before my eyes." Another bizarre moment for the books!

One might think that it’s “just ice”, water frozen solid that melts at the touch of a hand. But there are a lot more conditions to be taken into consideration here. First of all, the size of the slabs that detach from the speeding semi. Second of all, the speed both the semi and the car are driving at. When that much force is met, there is bound to be some kind of damage. Lucky for the driver it was only his windshield!

    Here in MA, the police can and will pull over and ticket vehicles with ice and/or snow on them. Especially the Staties on the MA Pike. One fatality too many, I guess, and the legislature made it a crime.
