Windshield cracks are not all that uncommon. They are typically caused when a rock or piece of gravel flies up from the roadway or off a truck and hits your car's windshield while you are driving. Having the crack filled is extremely important. It helps to prevent the crack from growing larger as your car vibrates due to rocky roads or potholes.
