Trailer Hitch Smashes through Windshield on I-5
At approximately 7:20 this morning, a 37-year-old Puyallup man luckily escaped with only scrapes and scratches after a trailer hitch came through his windshield while he was driving south on I-5 near the Tacoma Dome. The hitch was lying on the roadway and got kicked up by a vehicle traveling in front of the truck.
This is a good reminder why it’s so important to regularly check your vehicle to ensure everything is properly secured. For more information about load loss and securement, visit ttp://www.wsp.wa.gov/traveler/loadloss.htm.
