NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – A University of New Orleans student is counting his blessings after an accident Sunday afternoon sends a pole through his windshield.
WGNO viewer Casey Nunez sent in pictures and video. He tells us the man was heading West on Interstate-10 when he hit a puddle and lost control of his car, driving through a fence and coming to a stop on train tracks near the City Park exit.
Nunez says when the student slammed into the fence a pole attached to it went through the windshield and out the rear of the car, missing the driver by inches.
