SPOKANE, Wash.--A rock nearly hit a man driving home Sunday night through Spokane. Eric Reiber said someone threw a rock at his car as he was approaching the Maple Street Bridge.
"I was scared," Reiber said. "It kind of shakes me up a little thinking about it honestly."
Reiber said he drove toward downtown, passed under the first overpass approaching Maple Street, and then the rock crashed through his windshield and bounced off of his dashboard.
"I'm lucky honestly it didn't hit me," Reiber said. "I didn't have anybody with me. Had I had somebody I could imagine they could be in pretty critical condition if not worse."
Reiber said he had been driving 45 miles per hour.
The rock crashed through the windshield on the passenger side the vehicle. The rock dented the dashboard and came to a rest in front of the passenger seat.
"I had dropped my friend Stephanie off two minutes form there at her apartments and I was headed home and it surprised me," Reiber said.
“It surprised me and I didn't know what to do and I called the cops, told them I was pulling over at the Conoco right now,” he added. "Obviously it could have fallen down because you've got to put a rock up there and if somebody put it up there, you've got to push it off."
Anybody with information is asked to call crime check.
Tonight on KREM 2 News at 6:00, Reiber describes the scary moment when a large rock came crashing into his front seat.
