“Someone could have died,” said Sardo.

Festus police say at least 4 vehicles were damaged in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 25th. The first report of damage came just after 3 am. Vehicles were stuck on the hood and windshield just under the Main Street overpass on Interstate 55. Vehicles in both the north and southbound lanes sustained damage.

A Ford Expedition had windshield damage the size of a basketball. A female passenger was treated and released from an area hospital after shards of glass entered her eyes. She also complained of shoulder pain. Police found a large piece of asphalt in the back seat of the Expedition. The driver was not injured.
Sardo believes his son is fortunate even though the windshield was damaged.

“He could have been injured. He could have been knocked out and just drove into an opposing lane,” said Sardo.

He hopes the person or persons responsible will be punished, but hopes more than anything no one will throw rocks over any overpass.
