“Bill and Becky Cassell were on their way to the grocery store for winter weather supplies when a sheet of ice flew off the roof of a passing car and slammed into their windshield.
“When I opened my eyes, we were covered in glass and ice,” Bill Cassell recalled. “Going straight was the only thing I could do. There was no getting out of the way.”
Cassell said they sustained minor injuries, which primarily consisted of small cuts on their hands from the glass. However, the accident left them uneasy.
“It wasn’t really until we got how and saw how bad it was that I started shaking,” said Becky Cassell. “[The ice] came right into his face. It could have killed him. So, I’m so thankful to God that it didn’t.””

We’ve talked about clearing ice and snow from your vehicle in the past. Most people, however, are only concerned with clearing the windshield for visibility. Some, even only clear out a tiny portion of the windshield! The truth is, your vehicle needs to be completely free from any ice or snow that has the potential to slide off. It’s not only the responsible thing to do, but may end preventing a horrific tragedy.
