As bad as that was, it could have been so much worse.
Yep OR nothing bad could have happened at all. ;)

That reminds me of the time my brand new Explorer was hit by a flying piece of rebar on the way to work one day. The rebar hit the front edge of the hood, flipped up and spun across the hood and just past the driver's side window. Scraped the crap out of the hood of my brand new truck. Everyone kept saying "Man, that could have gone straight through your windshield." Or, "Man, you're lucky that didn't go right through the radiator and into the engine."

All I could think was "Yeah, it also could have missed my friggin' truck entirely." :rolleyes


That sucks about the dudes foot though - his foot is definately going to be hurtin' for a while. Actually there's a good chance he has a few cracked bones in his foot. Ouch! Good job staying composed though.

I wouldn't sue anyone. But if they went over a metal plate that was on the road for construction or something and a piece of that is what went through his foot, it's possible he could sue someone (the city planners or the construction guys?) over it I guess. IDK, it just seems like these days everyone tries to sue, I figured this would be no exception.

Did that happen on I35 in the fast lane going north a while back?

No, it happened in Houston. There's tons of crap on the freeways around Houston.

But I-35 is just a bad. I stay as far away as possible from I-35. I-35 through Austin is without a doubt the most dangerous highway I've ever travelled. I won't let my wife drive on it AT ALL.
