As per an article printed in the Reading Eagle on 9/18/17 objects were thrown from this bridge and also the Power Drive overpass on I-78 over the weekend.A tractor trailer was hit by an object thrown from this bridge at 3 a.m. Saturday hitting the windshield with no injuries.On Sunday at 2:30 a.m. rocks were hurled from the Power Drive overpass hitting 2 cars.The impact punctured the front windshield and damaged the undercarriage of a westbound car.The second westbound car sustained damage to the front windshield and a flat tire.No injuries were reported with these incidents.I print this because this just goes to show how dangerous the roads can be,especially around bridges where idiots can hide and throw objects at cars and trucks not caring what happens next.Hopefully these idiots as i call them do get caught because they could have possibly killed someone.If i read or hear of anything further on these incidents i will post them here.

That's it,Dana and Kay.Thanks for putting it on Bridgehunters.I sort of know what they mean by the escrow but put it on here anyway.It is irrelevant,though.
