DETROIT (WJBK) – There are more reports of flying concrete on the freeway in metro Detroit.
This time a man claims a chunk of concrete, the size of a basketball, came crashing through his windshield on I-696.
“It sounded like a gun shot went off. The next thing I know I am covered in glass. I didn’t know what hit me”, said Patrick Zawacki.
The incident happened on Sunday.
Zawacki said he was on his way home on East 696 near the Mound Road overpass when something came crashing through his passenger side window.
“I had no idea what happened. It took a few seconds to gather myself. Luckily I didn’t lose control or anything.”
Patrick pulled over and called Michigan State police. An officer showed up and informed him it was in fact a basketball sized piece of concrete that shattered his windshield and left a gaping hole.
“I started walking around my vehicle, picking up large pieces of concrete on the side of the road. He kept showing me. He walked over to my vehicle and said the roads are an absolute disaster. He actually says he has been seeing this once a week.”
