Ax flies through RI couple's windshield

Ax flies through RI couple's windshield story image

MASSACHUSETTS (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Rhode Island couple came face-to-face with death when an ax flew through their windshield during a trip down a Massachusetts highway.

"It struck the road surface, bounced, swung through the air and went through the windshield," said Trooper Joe Risteen. "It was right at eye level for this woman. So, if this ax had penetrated further, and hit her, she would have been injured or killed."

The pair was following a landscaper driving a dump truck.

Massachusetts State Police say the driver did not secure the ax properly and it flew off.

Somehow the ax stopped on the dashboard in front of the woman sitting in the passenger seat, spraying her with glass.

The pair was a little shaken, but not injured.

The dump truck driver did stop and was cited $200 for his mistake.
