Pumpkin tossed off I-70 overpass at vehicle, semi may have also been targeted.


The Indiana State Police are warning drivers to use caution after a vehicle was badly damaged by a pumpkin that was thrown from an overpass.

The pumpkin throwing incident occurred around 4 a.m. on Sunday, October 18, on I-70 in Hendricks County, Indiana.

Twenty year old motorist Caleb Needham was westbound on the interstate just after the Plainfield Exit when he saw a semi truck also on I-70 swerve as if to avoid something. Needham then saw a smashed pumpkin on the roadway, WTHR reports.

Just seconds later, a second pumpkin thrown from an overpass crashed through his windshield and landed in the passenger seat.

Needham was able to safely pull over and was not hurt.

The Indiana State Police are asking drivers to be cautious: “We are asking people to be vigilant. Watch those overpasses, if you see something suspicious, if you see children or teenagers up on those overpasses, report that to 911 right away so we can respond and investigate.”

We get home after vacationing in Hilton Head, SC with our girls around 1am. Plan to post pics tomorrow in case someone…
