Object Thrown At Vehicle From Highway Overpass

Smith County authorities are looking for whoever threw an object from an overpass onto Interstate 20 in Winona. The latest incident happened Tuesday. Department of Public Safety officials say this type of activity is nothing new, but when multiple incidents are reported in a certain area, they are extra vigilant in the vicinity.

DPS says if you notice something suspicious, call authorities and take safety measures when traveling down the highway. "We want people when they're traveling down the interstate to be aware of what's going on around them. Look up ahead. You know when bridges and overpasses are coming. Happen to glance and see if there happens to be somebody up there," said Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Jane Steeley.

Smith County officials say they found a sackful of pumpkins at Highway 155 on Interstate 20 earlier this week.
