The driver of a vehicle on I-95 in Westport suffered facial injuries today when a piece of ice from a passing truck flew off that vehicle and smashed through the windshield. The driver was traveling southbound on the Saugatuck River Bridge at the time of the accident just after 1 p.m. Westport firefighters and EMS responded along with state troopers, and the driver was transported to Norwalk Hospital. Drivers must remove snow and ice and from their vehicles under the law and maintain proper distances from other vehicles, said Assistant Fire Chief William Dingee.

By warning people to “maintain proper distances”, it is implied that sheets of ice are only a hazard if the driver is tailgating.  These chunks of ice are very often lifted off the cars and trucks by the high-speed air currents (caused by highway driving) and go flying up into the air first.  They are then landing many car-lengths back, in adjacent lanes, and in oncoming lanes.  The single important safety message here should be to remove snow and ice from the tops of all vehicles.
