You Will Not Believe This Driver Survived This INSANE Freak Accident See The Pic & Hear Her Story!
Talk about incredible luck — bad AND good!
On Friday, Florida resident Christina Kay Theisen was driving home from a business trip when the unthinkable happened — a boat oar crashed through her windshield and nearly killed her.
Theisen was driving through an area dubbed “alligator alley” for the reptiles which are often seen hanging in he waterways beside the road. We guess boat oars are more dangerous than crocs these days!
As for how the boat oar lodged itself in the driver’s windshield, the treacherous item somehow came loose from a passing RV on the highway. It’s also possible the RV kicked the oar up from the asphalt.
“When it came at me, the first reaction was to duck to the right. And that probably saved my life.”
Phew, what a relief! We can’t imagine how scary the situation must have been for Theisen!
According to highway patrol, the scary case has been closed. It’s unclear if the driver of the RV was fined for not properly securing the oar.
Shockingly, according to Florida law, even if items falling from your vehicle injure or kill someone on the road, the crime is only a misdemeanor with a penalty of up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. Eesh!
Stay safe out there, Christina!
