(Newser) – Car passengers on I-95 in Massachusetts survived one of the weirder road hazards you'll ever see: An ax fell off a landscaping truck directly in front of the car, smashed into the windshield, and lodged itself in the dashboard, reports CBS Boston. “Thankfully, the ax only went halfway through the windshield," say State Police, which shared the photo from Topsfield. Nobody got hurt, though the truck driver got a $200 ticket for improperly securing his cargo, reports Boston Magazine.
