One man in the US may need to buy a lotto ticket and a new pair of undies after a large metal beam fell off a truck and struck his vehicle.

In a photo released by San Jose Fire Department in California, a metal beam can be seen after it smashed through the middle of the windscreen.

In a twist of fate, the driver escaped serious injury, instead walking away with a minor scratch to his right arm.

He was able to safely navigate his car to the side of road following the impact.
