A MOTORIST had a lucky escape after a chunk of wood flew off a van and speared his windscreen.
The driver suffered only a bloody nose during yesterday afternoon's incident on the A143 at Horringer, near Bury St Edmunds.
Though the circumstances are still being investigated by police, it is thought that a piece of wood had come free from a box van and flew through the windscreen of a Volkswagen Passat travelling behind.
Although the windscreen was “badly damaged” and a hole was visible on the driver's side, a spokesman from Suffolk police said the unnamed motorist only suffered a bloody nose.
The spokesman said: “We are investigating the circumstances of the incident and will then decide whether to report anyone in connection with it.”
