Indiana State Police issue warning to drivers after pumpkins were thrown off overpass at vehicles

The Indiana State Police are warning drivers to use caution when approaching an overpass after two pumpkins were thrown at oncoming vehicles.

The pumpkin throwing incident occurred on Sunday, October 18, at approximately 4:00 am 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.

Seconds later, a second pumpkin thrown from an overpass crashed through Needham’s windshield and landed in the passenger seat.

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

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.”
