(NBC) - A driver's dashcam captured the scary moment falling ice and snow shattered his windshield.

Video shows a snow plow on an highway overpass.

The driver, Kevin Hoffer, was on the western Michigan Highway Monday, when the incident happened.

The plow can be seen pushing a pile of snow and ice off the overpass, onto Hoffer's windshield.

He wasn't hurt but did need a few minutes to get his bearings before a state trooper came along to help.

"I sat there for a few minutes trying to figure out what I was going to do because the windshield was damaged enough that I wasn't sure I really wanted to drive it," said Hoffer. "(The trooper was) like, 'Can I help you?' I was like, ‘Yeah, I kind of pointed out the front, and he didn't quite get the clue what I was pointing at, and then I said the windshield, and he looked in, and he was like, ‘Wow, OK get it now.'"
