HAVERHILL, Mass., Dec. 31 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts man's dashboard camera captured the moment a large sheet of ice flew from the SUV in front of him, flipped through the air and destroyed his windshield.
Jeffrey Cote, who posted the video to YouTube, said he was driving on southbound Interstate 495 in the Haverhill area when the sheet of ice flew off the top of the SUV driving in front of him.
The video shows the ice sheet flip through the air, covering a large distance before crashing directly into Cote's windshield.
"If I had braked harder, I could have avoided impact, but it initially appeared the piece was going to fall in front of me," he wrote in the video's description.
Cote said the shattered windshield covered him and the inside of the car with glass, but he was not injured.
