Concrete From Deteriorating Overpass Falls On Passing Car

 Friday, September 18, 2015


The driver of an airport shuttle service as well as the passengers he was transporting luckily avoided serious injury as he was driving on I-80 Tuesday afternoon. Mike Peterson was heading west on I-80 in the center lane, going about 60 mph, when he went under the overpass at 13th East. He never knew what hit him. "I don’t know if I screamed. It was more like, oh my word, what just happened?" he said. The hood of Peterson’s Toyota Sienna was heavily damaged by a large chunk of concrete that fell from the overpass. The hood was crushed, the windshield had several big holes in it.
