State Police report a hatchet came flying through the windshield of a car traveling south on I-95 in Topsfield this morning due to the carelessness of the driver of the landscaping truck in front of them - who failed to tie down the hatchet:
Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield. The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn't be?) but not injured. Trooper Joseph Risteen of the Newbury Barracks responded to the scene and cited the truck driver, who is from Peabody, for failure to secure cargo.
