Woman says someone threw a rock at her car from overpass

KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Drivers are becoming targets on a busy metro interstate.

Every day thousands of cars travel on Interstate 635 and pass under the Georgia Avenue overpass, but one woman says she could have been seriously hurt after someone threw a rock that struck her windshield Tuesday.

"It was a complete shock. I had to sit there for a while I was driving and really take in what happened," Megan Campbell said.

She said she saw feet running away from overhead and that the culprit may have hit at least one other vehicle.

"I kind of had to look around at the other vehicles and that's when I noticed another one up ahead that was also going a little slow and noticed they got hit as well," Campbell said.

Anna Stigler lives near the overpass and says, even with the fence, there is a danger and it has changed her driving habits.

"This is a very dangerous thing, very dangerous," Stigler said. "When I see an overpass ahead, I always look up to see if there's anyone on the overpass because then it gives me a better chance to do something different, if something like that is going to happen."

Campbell is worried about more than her windshield.

"Somebody could have been seriously injured. It could have hit the window right in front of my face and I wouldn't have been able to see and I could have run into somebody. It could have went through the windshield and I could have had a kid in the car," she said.

Kansas City, KS, Police say Tuesday's incident was the first one of its type reported to them at that location. They said, if it is happening more frequently, drivers need to take the extra step and report it so they can do something about it.
