"I didn't see anyone because it was dark and I was looking through my rearview mirror to make sure the car behind me was okay and saw the chairs in the road," PK said. As soon as I got around the chairs, the glass shattered all over the side of my face and onto my eyelids and I couldn't see through the shattered window."
