Default Just another 1 mph would have killed this woman

Woman survives freak accident when freeway sign crushes her car. Just think if she was driving just another 1 mph faster...

They should have used stronger tape to hold that sign in place.

1mph faster would come about 1.5 feet a second.

Would be close for sure.

About a month ago I hit a really big buck on the way out to my dark site to take photos. Luckily I was in the wife's Acrua RLX (big sedan) and not the Corvette, which I've taken there numerous times. Centered him right between the headlights at ~75 mph. Had I been in the Vette, afraid I might have had venison tar-tar smothered in windshield chunks for dinner. Acura was totaled but took good care of me... not a scratch or bruise. Sobering to think what might have happened in the Vette.

Thankfully Florida deer are all about the size of a German Shepard dawg, and so when I hit one at about 40 mph at night with the lights on in my '72, it wiped out both operating lights, all the aluminum was shattered this was in '98.......gal I was with was all concerned over the stupid damn deer, meanwhile I had more important things on MY mind....last I seen of HER.....
