The windshield is an important part of the crash system of the vehicle. Have it replaced promptly by a competent glass shop.

If your crack started from an impact to the windshield, check with your insurance company. They will help, and it won't raise your rates if they pay some or all of it.

And if you're lucky enough to live in The Sunshine State, windshield replacements are always covered with no deductible. Something in Florida insurance regulations that requires the insurance companies to do that. Helps keep a lot of unsafe vehicles off the roads.
