    Friday the 13th is lucky for woman

    LA CROSSE, Wis. - Friday the 13th turned out to be lucky for one Wisconsin woman.

    Sara Wrobel narrowly missed a 15-to-20 ton piece of construction equipment that became unhinged from a dump truck and fell in front of her as she backed out of her driveway.

    She said she walked out of her house a few minutes early Friday and pulled out of her driveway, and as she waited for her garage door to close the equipment — a rock screener — fell.

    "I heard this weird noise, and the thing crashed right in front of me," said Wrobel, who is pregnant and due any day.

    The screen became unhinged from the dump truck, hit a telephone pole, flipped over the embankment and landed on the driveway, she said.

    Wrobel wasn't too upset about the damage to her concrete, for which the equipment's owner Kraemer Co. will pay, she said.

    "They were wonderful," she said of the company. "I was actually really calm. The driver came by and was shaking like a leaf. It was an accident. You don't plan these things."

    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !
