GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A Cleveland man escaped being seriously injured in Michigan Friday morning after a post came flying off a truck and went through his windshield.

The man said he rented a car and was trying to make it home to Northeast Ohio from Grand Rapids after picking up his daughters.

He said a lumber truck in front of him hit a bump and a stack of posts flew off the back; one went straight through the windshield.

"It's exactly a miracle; I am blessed to still be here and I ended up making it to Cleveland and I got both my daughters in the car with me right now and we are headed back," he said.

The man, thankfully, walked away with only a small scratch.
