Driver's windshield struck by rock on I-890

SCHENECTADY -- A two cars were damaged after someone threw debris onto I-890 from an overpass Wednesday night. Police received a 911 call two minutes before the damage to report a person was throwing plywood.

It completely shattered the whole windshield with glass reflecting inside the vehicle, glass everywhere. I'm lucky it didn't go through, said Julia, who did not want her last name used. I really wasn't thinking, just making sure everything was intact. I was still ok to pull over and get out of everybody's way. I'm glad it wasn't more serious.

Julia and the other driver werent injured by the incident, but it left her too shaken to continue using I-890 to get home.

Definitely changing my routine for a while until I feel confident something has been done, said Julia.

Police called this and similar incidents in recent years isolated and said there were no plans to make changes to any of the citys overpasses.

We'd love to see some sort of task force put together, said Julia. Lets claim back this area because someone's definitely going to get killed soon.
