The car crossed the median and was hit by a semi-trailer, sending an unsecured laptop in the backseat flying into the front of the vehicle. He has still not recovered from the injury.Projectile laptops in the event of a sudden stop or accident are especially a concern among fleet drivers, since many keep their laptops in the back seat of their vehicle.
