Arizona driver nearly impaled after metal pole crashes through her windshield: report

  Arizona driver nearly impaled after metal pole crashes through her windshield: report Mandy Poff of Arizona says she hasn’t been able to sleep since a metal pole came crashing through the windshield of her SUV on Thursday morning, narrowly missing her as it pierced the back seat of her vehicle. Poff says the mishap occurred while she was merging her vehicle onto Highway 51 in Mesa. The pole had popped off the back of a passing truck after it hit a bump in the road, FOX 10 of Phoenix reported. She saw the four-foot-long piece of metal coming at her – but claims there was nothing she could do to avoid it. "It kind of bounced on the road and flipped up straight through the windshield by my face," Poff told FOX 10.

At least six people, including three firefighters, were attacked by the swarm at around noon local time on Thursday July 29, near the intersection of Moore Road and Thomas Arron Drive in Marana.

Three members of the public, including Santiago and the child whose life he helped to save, were stung hundreds of times and required medical treatment, according to Northwest Fire District.
