(Scroll down for video) A truck driver is lucky to be alive after concrete poles smashed through his windshield.
A video uploaded to the Internet showed how the truck driver of China, miraculously escaped death.
The driver had slammed on the brakes, causing two huge concrete poles, which he was carrying on a flatbed, to plow through the cab and the front windshield.
The driver, named Zhang, was driving the truck loaded with more than ten heavy concrete poles and was headed to a construction site in the Yinzhou District of Ningbo.
During his trip, the poles, which were not tied tight enough, began moving. Two poles suddenly became loose and fell to the ground when the driver took a sharp turn.
Zhang then stepped on the brakes, causing two pillars of concrete to come smashing through the cabin and out the windshield, scraping Zhang’s hand.
If the poles moved a couple of inches to the left, it would have hit the driver, seriously injuring or killing him.
The whole front of the truck was destroyed in the accident.
