DALLAS, Texas (KTRK) -- A metal hook flew off a vehicle and crashed through a car's windshield, hitting the teen driver on her hip.
Sierra Biddulph was driving with her mother on the Dallas North Tollway when the hook broke through her windshield.
"All of a sudden there was this loud explosion and I felt something hit my hip. I couldn't see very well," said Sierra.
Sierra only has a driver's permit.
"I could tell she was so rattled by the experience but she did such a great job. she stayed in control," said her mother Carolyn Biddulph.
The hook weighs about a pound and hit the car at 50 miles per hour, shattering the entire windshield.
Luckily, no one was injured. DPS says this should be a reminder for drivers to properly secure loads and always keep a safe following distance.
