This is the kind of freak accident that inspires movies like Final Destination: a driver in New Jersey has died after a 50 pound dumbbell fell into his car. The dumbbell had smashed through the windshield and struck the driver in the head.
According to CBS Philly, driver Jack DeCarlo was taken to a hospital where he was treated for injuries before being pronounced dead. His wife was also in the car at the time but miraculously escaped without being physically harmed. The accident occurred on the New Jersey turnpike; the couple were on their way to Myrtle Beach at the time.
The scariest detail: police can't seem to figure out where the dumbbell came from. The two possibilities seem to be that it either fell off a truck or other vehicle or was dropped from a turnpike overpass.
The investigation is ongoing.
