ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) - Two Massachusetts men escaped a brush with death during a business trip to Arizona.
A large rock fell from a canyon wall and crashed through the windshield of their rental SUV.
Peter Wilson and his 74-year-old business partner were on business in Arizona when they decided to do some sightseeing. Their trips through Oak Creek Canyon nearly killed them when a 150-pound boulder crashed right through their front windshield.
The boulder landed in between the two men, then rolled onto Wilson's co-worker's lap. Both men received only minor cuts.
The rental car didn't do so well.
"When it came down, it came square through the windshield. It didn't hit the hood, it didn't hit the top of the SUV, it went through the glass and hit the dashboard. That's what saved us," Wilson said.
