CALEDONIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Nikki Corner is asking others to remove snow off their vehicles.

Corner, from Caledonia, was driving on M-37 when an oncoming vehicle passed her. Moments later, a slab of ice and snow hit Corner's windshield. She estimates the slab measured three feet by four feet.

It damaged the windshield, the top of the vehicle, and the rearview mirror. The collision also sprayed glass inside the vehicle.

"I really didn't think it was going to be that bad," said Corner. "I expected it to make a noise and just poof into snow. [I] didn't expect the noise and the glass breakage."

Michigan State Police says the other driver could be cited for depositing snow on the road, but there is no specific law regarding removing snow off of your vehicle.

Corner is asking those who get behind the wheel to take the time after a snowfall.

"I just hope people watch this and remind everybody that just to take the time," said Corner.

Insurance will cover the cost, but for now, Corner won't be driving her vehicle until it is fixed.
