Sheet of ice crushes Amanda Hubbard’s car in Connecticut PHOTO

‘It could have been much worse’ is the message from Connecticut, where a sheet of ice fell from a building and crushed a woman’s car.

While she’s upset, Amanda Hubbard said Wednesday that she’s grateful that her newly paid off vehicle is destroyed, but it easily could have been a disaster and killed someone.

Hubbard heard the ice sliding from her roof. By the time she ran to her window, the damage was done — the roof was crushed.

The hood is badly dented, and the ice is still there.

“I kinda freaked out a little bit,” she said. “I won’t lie.”

She’s only had the title since last week.

As Hubbard meets with insurance agents, she said she’s grateful because children live in her building and no one was hurt.

“This could have been my child. This could have been my handicapped sister. This could have been the two children that are upstairs,” she said.

She’s also grateful that no one was in the car when the ice came crashing down.
