Firefighters said they had to cut through pieces of construction rebar to free two work trucks that hit each other.

You can see in the pictures that the rebar pierced the front of one of the trucks and stabbed through the center console, coming very close to where the driver’s right leg would be.

Fire crews said there were no injuries reported in the wreck. No information was provided on what caused the crash or how significantly the other truck was damaged.
