Born Under A Bad Sign... That Should Have Said 'Beware Of Falling Ice'

| No Comments

My hometown newspaper has the story of a woman who was in the wrong place at the wrong time:

It was about 7:45 a.m., Monday morning, Feb. 2, when Brenda Beazley, a county employee was driving to work at the courthouse. She was in front of the Vo Tech Center and saw a medium sized white truck approaching from the opposite direction. Suddenly, as the truck was almost abreast of her, she saw something white fly off the roof. Brenda thought it might have been a piece of metal. She didn't think about it long, however, because suddenly a hole was punctured through her windshield on the driver's side and an object smashed into her face. She was able to pull off the road, and found blood streaming into her eyes and down her face.

. . .

Brenda had eight stitches placed in her scalp and five more on her nose. The doctor thought perhaps she had a broken nose. A piece of thick ice had dislodged from the roof of the truck and smashed through the windshield of Beazley's vehicle.
Of course, it could be worse..
