A DRIVER had a miracle escape after a huge metal beam smashed through the front windscreen of his car – missing his head by inches.
The BMW was travelling along the I-280 motorway near San Jose, California, when the block fell from the back of a truck.
Incredibly, the driver managed to pull over to the side of the road and was able to walk away from the accident unhurt.
San Jose Fire Department spokesman Captain Christopher Salcido said: “Had the person been a little more to the right, it would have impaled him.
“It looks like he not so much dodged a bullet, but dodged a large beam of metal”
