Cpt. Christopher Salcido, a San Jose Fire spokesman, said the driver was somehow able to maneuver the BMW to the side of the road.

"Had the person been a little more to the right, it would have impaled him," Salcido said. "It looks like he not so much dodged a bullet, but dodged a large beam of metal."
