HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) - A bizarre accident impaled a vehicle in Houston on Friday.

Miraculously, no one was seriously injured.

Authorities said a tractor trailer's hydraulic lift activated and the truck struck a concrete barrier on an overpass.

A large piece of metal broke off the truck and flew into a car's passenger-side windshield.

The railing on the side of the road was so damaged that the Texas Department of Transportation closed it over the weekend for repairs.
