Minnesota woman avoids serious injury after ice chunk smashes through windshield
“”All a sudden I saw this ice block,” said Sophia DiNatale from Red Wing, Minnesota.
DiNatale says she’s just grateful to be alive.
“I was like okay I thought it was just regular snow, I didn’t think anything of it and all of a sudden it smashed straight through my windshield,” said DiNatale.
A two feet piece of ice shattered through the driver’s side, cutting up DiNatale’s face and head.
“I got very lucky,” said DiNatale. “Everybody at the scene said it could have been a lot worse; I could have been killed.””

Over the last few weeks, the Minnesota region has been pummeled with snowfall and cold weather. Naturally, ice build-up on vehicles has been more commonplace which presents a serious hazard to other drivers. Clearing ice and snow from vehicles often get neglected as drivers rush to start their morning commutes. However, as you’ve just read, failing to do so could have serious consequences.
