Pima County sheriff's Deputy Daniel Jelineo said the black sports auto struck the cactus while crossing a median. "Miraculously, no injuries were reported", they wrote while sharing the pic, which shows a large cactus sticking out of the car's windshield.

Although it's probably not as severe as hitting, say, a solid tree trunk, the driver is still incredibly lucky to be alive. The driver was identified as 39-year-old Kai Scott, and was later detained after showing possible signs of impairment.

According to Crystal Kasnoff, the NWFD public information officer, the driver got into an accident and crossed the median, where he ran into the cactus.
