Flying beer keg slams into car windscreen
Incredible dash-cam video has captured the moment a beer keg slams into a car windscreen.
The driver was travelling along the M4 near Eastern Creek in Sydney's west just after 6am yesterday when they were caught off-guard by the rogue object.
The video shows the airborne barrel flying across the other side of the road before hitting the front of the car.
The video was posted on the Facebook page Dash Came Owners Australia.
A woman by the name of Carolyn Woods replied to the original Facebook post saying her father was the person behind the wheel.
“He’s ok…A few scratches. The car was a write off tho...Thank god, it could of been a lot worse, the keg was empty,” Ms Wood writes.
“We had a few laughs and a beer when he got home.”
Others weighed in on the close call.
"Happy he is OK.. but annoyed that the keg was empty..no spoils, " Michelle Brad posted.
"Carolyn, your dad needs to buy a lotto ticket!" Kristy Johnson commented.
"Hope the reckless bloke who was responsible is caught and gets taught how to secure his load properly as it could have been a fatal accident," Daniel Kirkness writes.
