Twenty-three yea old Rebekah Jasmer says it was easily the scariest moment of her life, when an eight foot steel pipe came crashing through her windshield, just barely missing her. She has scraps on her face and hands to show just how close it came.
"Woah, this is the first time I've been back in her since it happened," said Jasmer.
Visibly shaken up, she sits behind the wheel of her pick up truck. The same place she was when a steel pipe came barreling through the windshield Tuesday morning.
"It was dark out, and head lights, just seeing it come up in the dark."
It was just before 6 a.m., when Jasmer turned onto Hickory Road in Hull, on her way to work.
Jasmer was driving about 55 miles per hour, when she came up behind a late model Ford pick up truck, with the tailgate down; hauling scrap metal. Jasmer says at one point the truck veered off to the side of the road, then quickly swerved back onto the pavement. That's when pieces of scrap metal came flying off the tailgate, including an eight foot steel pipe.
"I ducked to the left, as if came through the windshield, and over my right shoulder to the left side of my seat,"said Jasmer.
The steel pipe grazed Jasmer's cheek, shattering her glasses. When she ducked to avoid the pipe, she jerked the wheel to the right, sending her and her pick up, into a steep ditch, where no one could see her in the dark morning hours.
"I saw the cars passing by on the highway. I could hear them hitting the pieces of metal and stuff on the road. But they didn't stop. They couldn't see me."
Somehow, Jasmer was able to find her phone and dial 9-1-1.
"We're thankful to God, someone was watching over her," said Leroy Jasmer, Rebekah's dad.
Jasmer says she's not ready to drive the truck just yet. But she is hoping to go back to work on Friday.
The Sioux County Sheriff's Office is still looking for the driver of the late model Ford pick up truck. If you know anything about the accident, you are urged to call the sheriffs office.
