PERTH AMBOY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A female driver narrowly escaped serious injury on the Jersey-bound Outerbridge Crossing during Friday’s morning rush hour.

Part of a passing truck’s suspension, called a leaf spring, flew up and struck the windshield of her car just after 7 a.m., 1010 WINS reported.

The woman behind the wheel was injured by the shattered glass, but refused medical attention at the scene, 1010 WINS reported.

The incident backed up traffic on the bridge for about 30 minutes to allow crews to clear the road of debris.
