SANDY SPRINGS – (WAOK/AJC) – A Marietta man says he’s lucky to be alive after a flying blade hit him in the head as he drove down a highway. Henry Rodriguez says it felt like he had been hit with a baseball bat, when a 14-inch circular saw crashed threw his car and hit him in the head. Rodriguez was on I-285, Tuesday, when he says the blade came out of nowhere. Sandy Springs police are trying to determine if the saw fell off a truck or was sitting on the roadway, before it hit Rodriguez. He suffered a deep gash on his forehead and his arm, and says he has little to no movement in his left fingers, and that he may need surgery.
