Rock Thrown from Bridge Smashes Car on I-270
HILLIARD (Ben Garbarek) -- Hilliard Police are investigating after someone apparently threw a rock off an overpass on I-270 Monday afternoon.
Scott Lane said he believes it was a rock that hit his car as he drove underneath. It smashed the sunroof of his car and left several dents and scratches on the trunk.
Lane said the giant thud when his car was hit scared him.
"I thought I had been shot," Lane said. "First thing I did was call my wife and I couldn't even catch my breath at that time."
Lane said it may have seemed like a funny prank at the time, but he's not laughing.
"Any other day, the windows are down, the sunroof is open," he said. "But of course, it was raining so I had the sunroof closed and for some reason I pulled the moonroof cover too. Good thing I did, because I think it saved me."
Lane said it'll likely cost him about $2000 to repair his car.
