Lady captures near death experience on the road on video

The film clip is only 40 seconds long, but it’s already a contender for the scariest car crash video ever. And amazingly, the driver who filmed a long plank flying through her windscreen on her phone camera, escaped without a scratch.

Since she posted it online there have been a million views of the terrifying moment the piece of wood struck her minivan. The heart-stopping drama came as 40-year-old driver drove alone along the highway in Shelby, North Carolina, United States. But the incident which has been confirmed by local police, was no joke for her, according to Daily Mail.

This video unfortunately also highlights other aspects – such as the dangers of distracted driving, using handheld devices while driving etc.
