Caught On Cam: Flying snow breaks windshield

National News

(WOOD) — Monday morning’s snowfall caused big headaches for West Michigan drivers. One of them is lucky he wasn’t seriously injured.

Kevin Hoffer was driving underneath an overpass when a plow dumped snow and ice on his SUV’s windshield. 

“Soon as it hit the windshield, the windshield just shattered,” Hoffer said.

His dashcam video captured it all in real time.

“I saw a plow coming,” he said. “Thought nothing of it.”

The snowplow was eastbound on the Michigan Avenue overpass.

“I didn’t expect it to hit,” he explained. “I expected to actually get past it or for it to come down before it got to me.”

He was wrong. Snow crashed down on his windshield, creating a web of cracks.
