A Florida driver had a close call when a crowbar went flying through her windshield.

It happened to Angela Smith, a employee of TV station WESH, on Interstate 95 in Brevard County.

"I hear a loud 'bang' and I grip the steering wheel. After I hear the bang, I feel something hit my head and go down my arm and I panicked. I hit my flashers and pulled off to the side of the road," Smith told WESH.

When she had a chance to look at her car, there was a crowbar inside it, WESH reported. Troopers suggest it may have been on the road, hit by a car and flipped into the air as Smith's car drove right into it.

Smith had a few small cuts from the broken glass.
