Rock thrown on I-55

The Illinois State Police is investigating an incident which occurred in the early morning hours of Monday, November 20, 2017, in the northbound lanes of Interstate 55 near mile post 140 in Logan County. A motorist’s vehicle suffered significant damage when a large rock (approximately the size of a bowling ball weighing nearly 10 pounds) was thrown from an overpass located just outside of Atlanta, Illinois. The rock passed through the roof of the vehicle narrowly missing the driver and a rear passenger. In a stern warning, Illinois State Police District 09 Commander stated “If dropping objects from an overpass onto the roadway or traffic below sounds like a good idea – think again. Your actions can cause great bodily injury or death. When you are caught, punishment can include felony criminal charges and incarceration”

 The Illinois State Police is seeking information from the public to supplement their investigation.
