According to information from the Northwest Fire District, nobody was hurt, even though the vehicle came to rest with a large saguaro sticking out of the windshield, just missing the driver.
Pima County sheriff's Deputy Daniel Jelineo said the black sports vehicle struck the cactus while crossing a median before ending up on the other side of a road and that the cactus ended up slamming into the car's windshield.
