    Link: A 2 x 4 Smashes Through Windshield While Driving - Bet you didn`t expect that to happen. Side note: This really happened and reports state the person is OK.

    I don`t believe for one second that this wasn`t staged. Why would the driver be filming two vehicles in front of him like that? There was nothing special about them. The video would be totally lame and useless without the "dramatic" ending. The driver didn`t say anything either, like he knew it was coming. Most people would`ve said something or screamed, and dropped the camera. He just stopped the car. It was totally planned. Lame.

    HOLY! I jumped hard! Mostly because I didn`t know what a 2x4 was! I thought something like a 2x4 wheeled truck, e.g. a monstertruck! I was waiting, getting closer to look for the upcoming truck-through-the-windshield mayhem and than this! Shock is just the reaction you have, when s.th. unexpected suddenly surprises you, and I was pretty surprised! Almost poo-surprised myself!

    This is fake. Why would someone be filming like this? And why would they not drop the camera in terror once the 2X4 went through the window? No screaming either. Also, the trailer in front of him doesn`t jolt in the slightest when it hits the wood.
    That being said, I nearly poo myself when I first watched this.

    I don`t get it. Why do so many people feel the need to drive while video taping? I mean, if the person had have put down the camera they might have not been tailgating the person in front of them and might have even been able to dodge the board.

    Congratulation moron, now you have to pay a deductable. Let`s just call it a stupid tax instead.

    Also, I`ve filmed while driving. I`ll just prop the phone up on the dash and drive about. I do it mostly for pretty roads (Palisades Parkway in autumn) and to have footage for video projects so random video doesn`t make my bulslhit bell ring.

    Years ago I saw a video about how America`s Funniest Home Videos used to screen real videos from fake/staged ones. Their first criteria for catching a fake was when someone was video taping an ordinary activity for absolutely no reason and something crazy "just happens". This video is no exception. Why would a driver or passenger just be video taping a truck for no reason whatsoever? He wouldn`t be. It`s a fake.

    @verinon

    As has been explained in the article:

    "I was actually taping two trucks doing a little `cat and mouse` game and holding up traffic"

    She probably did not drop the camera or scream in terror for the same reason she was able to control the car and bring it to a safe stop: in a sudden life threatening situation, you simply don`t have time to scream or think or anything: instinct takes over, and you act on reflex alone.

    It shows she has good instincts.

    YIKES! I hate it when that happens.

    Years ago here in Winnipeg, a guy was driving along when a 2" pipe fell out of the truck in front of him, went through his windshield, through HIM and through his seat. He sat there, transfixed, until the firefighters came and cut him out with their diamond hacksaw. He was OK (except he lost a lung, and a rib) and got to keep the piece of pipe!
