How did this particular axe get in that particular windshield, not far from that particular woman's head? The Massachusetts State Police explain: From the force's Facebook page: These motorists, whom we are not identifying, endured a very frightening moment shortly before 11 a.m. today as they were driving on Route 95 southbound in Topsfield. A landscaper driving a dump truck in front of them had failed to properly secure an axe, which flew off the truck and struck the windshield of the car behind it. Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield. The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn't be?) but not injured. A trooper arrived on the scene and issued the truck driver a $200 ticket "for failure to secure cargo." The police used the incident as a chance to offer motorists two lessons: First, SECURE YOUR STUFF, MASSHOLES. LIKE, GOOD. Second, don't speed: The man whose car was struck was obeying the speed limit, driving about 65 mph. If he had been speeding, the increased velocity of his car would have increased the power of the axe's impact, meaning it could very well have gone through the glass and injured his passenger. Please remember those lessons. We are very thankful that this situation did not have a worse ending. No. Fucking. Shit. Full uncropped version of the pic: Terms of Service Privacy Policy
