Anything that is being carried in a pickup truck bed needs to be tied down. Period.
A woman driving on Interstate 95 near Rockledge, Fla., on Friday escaped death when a sheet of plywood flew out of the bed of a truck and slashed through the windshield of her Honda — at neck height.
Florida Today says Rebecca Burgman, 35, of Melbourne, Fla., had only minor injuries. The saving grace was the plywood was wider than the windshield, so the car’s A-pillars stopped it from decapitating her. But the leading corner of the plywood penetrated the car in a near-miss. Just imagine if there would have been a passender!
