This is the spectacular scene following a crash on John Adams Way, Boston, on Tuesday evening.
The photographs were taken by Ricky Wade, 26, of Brothertoft, who said there was one occupant of the car – a ‘very lucky’ driver who ‘walked away with no cuts or bruises’.
“I heard a noise and saw all the traffic stop, so me and a friend went running over there,” he told The Standard.
The pictures show the railing passing through the windscreen.
It missed the driver ‘by inches’, Ricky said.
A spokesman for Lincolnshire Police said it was called to the crash at about 6.40pm on Tuesday and confirmed there were no injuries.
