A Houston woman avoided certain disaster while driving on the North Freeway this past Wednesday.

Ashley Laudermilk was driving along the freeway when suddenly, the car in front of her struck a metal pipe in the road.  The impact sent the metal pipe flying directly towards her vehicle, where it crashed right into her windshield.  She told KTRK-TV, "It flew.  It went from the ground up, and then, 'boom,' and that was that."  The pipe lodged between the dashboard, and a spot next to the passenger side door.

Laudermilk said she was lucky to be alive, and thankful her boyfriend was not riding in the passenger seat at the time.
