She said the object was a 'thumb-sized screw' that shattered the glass, adding there were no construction sites or large trucks in the vicinity.She said: 'At first, we thought it was just a stone, but when I watched the dashcam clip, I realized it was a nut-like object that fell.'I hope this kind of thing doesn't happen to anyone else. I was very shocked at the time, but I tried to stay calm. I've already called my insurance company since the windscreen has to be replaced.'Kanyarat said that she was still shaken by the experience several days later.She vowed to drive more cautiously, especially since she often brought her child along with her in the car.
