Extreme weather causes problems for the driver every winter. If you're not careful, heavy snow can turn a morning walk from a serious headache into a dangerous situation. A driver in Kalamazoo, Michigan, found this to be the hard way as he drove down the highway on his way to work.
Kevin Hoffer drove under an overpass as snow and ice chunks ejected from a plow car crashed into his SUV's windshield. His dashcam has captured the entire incident on video, and the footage is frightening.
"As soon as he hit the windshield, the windshield was just shattering," Hoffer said in 24 Hour News 8
" I did not expect [the snow] to be hit, "Hoffer explained." I had expected that I would actually get past it or that it came down before it came to me. "
Although the windshield breaking into a web of tears, it did not completely break and Hoffer was not injured – his now viral video serves as a fearsome reminder to drivers to know their surroundings under difficult conditions – and not to forget to look!
