Vehicles damaged by objects thrown off I-55 overpass

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Police are looking for someone they say threw objects at vehicles off an overpass on Interstate 55.

At least seven vehicles were damaged after the debris was thrown off a South Memphis overpass near Mallory around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

I-55 sees tens of thousands of vehicles every day.

One witness, who didn't want to be identified, heard the objects being thrown onto cars.

"I heard someone yell, 'Car!' Once, I thought that I heard something go, 'Boom,'" the witness said.

A police report shows at least seven vehicles were hit by unknown objects — people in the neighborhood near the overpass believe the objects are rocks.

Damage to the vehicles include broken windshields, a broken sunroof and damage to the body of the cars.

"Usually, when people go across there it's alright. They just walk in the park and come out," says resident Chris Logan.

Thankfully, no driver who reported damage to their car was injured.

"They shouldn't even be doing it, because they aren't going to be doing anything but kill somebody. That's messed up though. That's real messed up," the witness said.
