- A truck driver narrowly avoiding death after a massive steel coil comes crashing through his cab. State Police in Slippery Rock Township say the trucker was driving along Route 422 when a car began turning left. The driver says his truck's braking assist feature sensed a collision might happen, so it automatically slammed on the brakes.

That caused one of the 39,000-pound steel coils it was hauling to break free. One smashed through the passenger side of the cab, just missing the trucker. A small oil leak also happened. Thankfully, no one was hurt.
