Topsfield, Mass. • It was a scary moment on a highway north of Boston when an ax smashed through the windshield of a car. Massachusetts State Police say the ax bounced out of a landscaper’s dump truck at about 11 a.m. Wednesday on Interstate 95 in Topsfield. The handle was sticking through the windshield. Police say the car’s passenger was "shaken up" but not hurt. The truck driver was cited for failing to secure the ax, which carries a $200 fine.
Police say it could have been worse if the car’s driver hadn’t been obeying the 65 mph limit.
