Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Emergency responders in Florida said a "lucky driver" walked away unscathed when a crowbar crashed into the windshield of their pickup truck.

The Daytona Beach Fire Department said the truck was traveling Wednesday on Interstate 95 when the crowbar flew into the windshield.


The department said the crowbar is believed to have been on the ground before a semi truck in front of the pickup drove over the tool, causing it to flip into the air.

The fire department posted photos of the pickup, with the crowbar still embedded in the windshield, to Twitter.

"No injuries to lucky driver who had crowbar fly through windshield when driving behind a semi on I-95," the department tweeted.

A department spokeswoman said the driver was hit by some broken glass, but did not sustain any injuries. She said incidents involving flying debris on the highway are not uncommon.
