Car windscreen smashed on highway by flying bin

Trash, bang, wallop

A DALLAS driver’s car windscreen was trashed when a rubbish bin fell off a trailer at 75mph.

Footage from the car’s dash cam shows the unsecured bin launched from the trailer, which was being towed by a pick-up truck.

Due to the a concrete reservation to the left and bollards to the right, there wasn’t any room to make an evasive manoeuvre and avoid the incoming waste receptacle. Amazingly, the only damage was to the windscreen; the rest of the car and the driver escaped unscathed.
