A woman in Washington state narrowly survived a car crash in which dozens of 27-foot long poles went through her windshield today.

According to police in Deming, Wash., a woman driving a white Toyota Camry was driving behind a station wagon with a trailer full of “Teepee poles” when the station wagon slowed down to allow a dump truck to turn, ABC News affiliate KOMO reported.  The driver of the Camry did not notice the station wagon slowing, and slammed into the trailer of poles.
