Driver expected to survive after metal smashes through SUV's windshield

- A driver is expected to survive after corrugated metal on a flatbed truck smashed into an SUV's windshield along Interstate 17.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the crash happened along the southbound lanes of I-17 at Bethany Home Road just before 7:00 a.m. The metal was loaded on the back of the flatbed truck when they smashed into the windshield, however, the cause of the crash is unknown.

DPS believes the driver of the SUV sustained non-life threatening injuries. It's unclear if the driver was distracted or misjudged how far that metal was hanging off the back of the truck.

The HOV and left lanes of southbound I-17 at Bethany Home Road have reopened.
