PHOENIX — A driver was luckily uninjured when their car was impaled by a piece of metal that came off of another driver's vehicle in Phoenix on Thursday.
The Department of Public Safety said a driver did not properly secure their load and "nearly cost an innocent motorist her life."

"Luckily, the victim wasn't physically injured when this 4 ft piece of metal impaled her windshield & became lodged in her SUV," the department tweeted.
DPS is cautioning drivers to make sure they secure their loads before hitting the roads.
