STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) – Indiana State police who investigated a truck driver’s report of gunshots aimed at his semi determined that the rig was actually struck by a rock or piece of concrete.
According to ISP, troopers were notified about the incident just after midnight Saturday morning. Investigators said a semi was traveling east on the Indiana Toll Road near the exit for I-69. The truck driver said he saw two flashes of light from an overpass and then his windshield shattered.
Investigators said a projectile passed through the front windshield and passed out the back window.
The truck driver was not hurt.
On Wednesday, state police said in a news release that the investigation revealed that the damage was “not caused by a bullet but by a hard projectile such as a rock or piece of concrete.”
Police reminded the public that items dropped or thrown from a highway overpass can cause serious injuries or death. Anyone who spots suspicious activity on any highway overpass is urged to call 911.
