An 18-wheeler truck was carrying thousands of pounds of sand in two trailers while exiting the freeway on an overpass. The truck attempted to make a left turn and flipped over. The truck's entire load of sand spilled onto the highway below. The sand's impact on one car caused the car's roof and front to implode and the front windshield to blow out.
