Crowbar smashes into Clinton woman's windshield while driving

Laura Halm, WATE 6 On Your Side Reporter - CLINTON (WATE) - "It was the scariest moment of my life," Kimberly Brummett said as she recalled the moment a crowbar hit the front windshield on her car.

Brummett said she was driving on Ridgeview Drive in Clinton around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night. The last thing she remembers is a dark colored full-sized pick-up truck coming towards her and then a crowbar hitting her window, smashing it.

Brummett is grateful she wasn't killed or even injured.

"I'm paranoid now to drive at night," she said.

Brummett says she was just two minutes away from home when a car was passing in the opposite direction. All of a sudden she heard a pop.

"I didn't know what hit my windshield until I had pulled over to call 911," she said.

It was a crowbar that's now sitting on her front porch.

"It was more a state of panic. I was more, I think in shock that my my windshield had busted and that I had glass from head to toe," added Brummett.

The windshield is fixed with just a few dents left behind, but Brummett says she can't help but think of all the "what ifs."

"I could not be here right now," she said.

Brummett worries that this may not have been an accident.

"As heavy and as big as that crowbar was, there's no way it bounced off the road," she said.

That's why Brummett has a word of warning.

"Be cautious, be aware of your surroundings, look at the vehicles as they pass you and just be careful."

In the meantime, Brummett is simply happy she walked away from this accident.

"It was God's way of telling me it wasn't my time to go yet."

The Clinton Police Department has not responded to questions about whether it is investigating the incident.. Brummett says she hopes someone knows something so the driver can be identified.
