Massachusetts police share photo of windshield struck by flying ax

No one hurt after ax goes flying through car windshield on Massachusetts highway

A photo Massachusetts State Police posted to its Facebook page on Wednesday looks like something out of a horror movie: A poorly secured ax went flying into the passenger-side windshield of a car on a Massachusetts highway, police said. 

No one was injured, but the picture that was posted by police -- with a warning -- has been shared thousands of times.

The incident happened about 11 a.m. on southbound Interstate 95 in Topsfield. The ax flew off a landscaper’s truck, piercing an unidentified driver’s windshield, police said.

The landscaper was ticketed for failure to secure cargo, which carries a $200 fine, police said.
