Falling ice shatters man's windshield while driving

Posted: Updated:

An Evansville man says he was nearly decapitated while driving a company truck on Highway 57.

Rick Dobbs says a sheet of ice flew off of an oncoming semi truck and shattered his windshield and back window. Luckily, the ice hit on the empty passenger side.  

He says he was covered in glass, ice, and water, but only suffered scrapes on his hand and ear.

"My wife was terrified at first. She was scared because two days prior she said we need to clean the snow off our car in case it would come off and hurt somebody. Then two days later it happened to me. If I have any advice, clean your cars off," Dobbs said.

Dobbs says he is thankful to be alive.
