A Washington state teenager is lucky to be alive after a fence post speared  through his windshield as he allegedly used his cell phone while driving.

The post “nearly took his head off,” Washington State Patrol Trooper Russ Winger told  KATU-TV.

Witnesses said the 18-year-old was text messaging and driving erratically  near Abderdeen on Saturday.


It was a nearly miraculous escape

The teen made a U-turn and then careened off the side of the highway,  slamming into a fence.

Photos show that the fence post impaled the windshield at a potentially  deadly angle just above the steering wheel.

Miraculously, the driver only suffered minor lacerations to his face,  according to KATU.
