26. Hate to say it, but this sort of thing happens regularly.
They're typically just reported as car accidents so people aren't all that aware of them.

Just within a few miles of me...about 10 years ago a woman was killed when a large bolt was kicked up by the car in front of her and came through her windshield...a young boy was killed when a large rock was picked up by a semi-truck tire and came through his side window...and a motorcyclist was killed when a chair fell off the back of a pickup in front of him.

Three in a decade, in a fairly small area. On a national scale, I'd bet this sort of thing happens a few times a week.
