Years ago, a friend and I went from Cairns to Port Douglas in hired mini moke (an open sided car). A Benz overtook us and threw up a stone. The windscreen shattered back into the car (it was in small pieces). We had little cuts all over but no real damage, thankfully.
Not whilst I was driving but it did happen to my dad once when we were going very fast on a motorway. It was incredibly scary but luckily my dad is a very cool customer and has really quick reflexes when driving (he used to race) so he was able to get us off the motorway and find a safe place to stop without any harm being done. The cost of replacing the windscreen and towing the car and getting all of us home was covered by the motorways agency as there shouldn't have been such a large stone on the road, it was because it was in poor repair.
Yep, driving from Railway Station to home, from work. Was in Datsun 1600, passing car threw up stone.
The noise was incredibly loud, sounded like a rifle shot, I was still alive, so no 'bullet' in me, laminated screen shattered into thousands of pieces, couldn't see, so had to pull over.
This was prior to mobile phones, so luckily I was near Public Phone Box, even more of a miracle, actually had some 'change' to make the call, to a very 'put out' husband, who bothered to arrive about 30minutes' later. We lived 10 minutes' away! His excuse? 'Busy'!
He hooked Datsun to my Datsun 'Skyline' 6 cylinder, powerful sedan, then I towed him to ?
Can't remember whether to home or mechanic's!
That's only time, & touch wood, something I don't want to go through again!
I have had it happen to me a couple of times the worst was at 5.30am with a temp of 3 degrees had to remove and continue 35km's to work. To make matters worse for the last couple of kms there was a light rain needless to say we were quite miserable when we arrived at work.
