A 53-year-old woman in Australia narrowly escaped death as a huge road sign fell on her car on a highway. The woman was driving along Tullamarine Freeway in Melbourne when an overhead road sign came crashing down suddenly and smashed her car. However, the driver miraculously escaped suffering only minor injuries.

The horrifying moment of the accident was caught on a dashcam of another car coming just behind it in the highway. The video obtained exclusively by 9News, showed the extent of the accident caused by the falling of the five-by-four-metre sign that came loose. The freak accident happened at around 5.15pm on Tuesday, the report added.

She was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with neck and hand injuries and is in a stable condition, ABC News reported. “There were a lot of other cars on the road, she’s the only one that’s been hit by the sign,” Acting Sergeant Jason Lane from Fawkner Highway Patrol said. “It is unusual. I haven’t come across it before,” he added.

A thorough investigation has been launched into the accident.
