Lucky es­cape for driver as ob­ject thrown from bridge

Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS - BY GARETH CROSS

PO­LICE in Craigavon have said that a driver is lucky to be alive after a group of young peo­ple dropped an ob­ject from a foot­bridge onto a car wind­screen.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened near Rush­mere Shop­ping Cen­tre.

A woman mo­torist was driv­ing at Lake Road when her wind­screen was shat­tered by the ob­ject thrown from the bridge.

Po­lice be­lieve a crowd of young peo­ple in their early teens and “pos­si­bly younger” were in the area at the time.

“By sheer chance it didn’t go com­pletely through and cause in­jury or worse. By good driv­ing, she didn’t swerve and hit some­one,” a PSNI spokesper­son said.

“This could have been death. Let the fact that it isn’t be a chance for ed­u­ca­tion. Talk to your kids. Now.”
