PHOENIX (KRON) — An Arizona man is recovering from non-life-threatening injuries after a load of sheet metal went straight through the windshield of his SUV.

The SUV was traveling on a highway when it rear-ended a truck carrying a load of corrugated sheet metal.

The metal was hanging off the end of the truck, so it went sailing through the SUV’s windshield when the vehicles collided.

Miraculously, the driver was able to walk away from the collision.

When the paramedics arrived, they put a brace on the man’s neck and helped him onto a stretcher. He was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.

The injuries appeared to be non-life-threatening, according to a state trooper.

The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.
