BELTON, Texas (KWTX) After a week of reported incidents involving objects being thrown at vehicles across Central Texas, one driver is describing the moments an object hit her windshield.
Myrna Murray was traveling down Interstate 14 around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday from Belton headed towards Killeen. What started out as a normal drive, changed when, she says, she saw something rushing towards her windshield.
“I was scared because it was coming at the car. The impact was really strong on the car," Murray said.
That impact was caused by an egg.
“I seen it crash in the window," she said.
“So your windshield is a little bit cracked?” News 10's Brandon Hamilton asked.
“Um hum, um hum, yeah," Murray replied.
Murray says she called her son, who reported the incident to the Belton Police Department.
“(I felt) scared. I was scared that it broke my car," Murray said.
There were also other drivers who called Belton police on the same night. According to police, two additional drivers reported objects hitting their vehicles on Interstate 14 between Loop 121 and FM1670. At least one caller reported a rock hit his vehicle.
“When people are driving down the interstate, that’s not something that should happen. Think twice, think three times, never do it," said Belton Public Information Officer Paul Romer.
Across Central Texas, a driver also reported Friday a rock hitting her vehicle in Temple. Her report coming nearly a week after the tragic death of 33-year-old Keila Flores.
Flores was killed after a rock went crashing through the windshield of the vehicle she was in on Interstate 35 Saturday night.
The advice to drivers is to be informed.
“We don’t know if you should be alarmed or not. We hope it’s not something we need to be alarmed about. But with what happened in Temple, people certainly want to be informed," Romer said.
In total, there have been three reported cases of objects hitting cars in Belton, and counting Friday, three reports in the city of Temple.
No one has been arrested.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
