A1 Security Crime of the Week

Objects Thrown Onto Highway 402

On October 17 th , 2021 shortly after 11pm, a pipe was thrown from the Murphy Rd overpass onto
Highway 402 at a moving vehicle striking the front windshield.  Moments before this, the driver saw
someone place an object on the highway, forcing a lane change just before impact. Right after the
impact, 3 people were seen on the overpass above.
A couple of hours later, a truck driver had to swerve to avoid hitting a shopping cart in the same
eastbound lanes near the same Murphy Rd overpass.
Luckily, there were no injuries in these incidents but there was a potential for very serious if not life
threatening results.
A person was arrested and charged with a similar act 2 or 3 weeks later when a bicycle wheel was
thrown from an overpass onto Hwy 402.
If you know anything about who may be responsible for throwing any objects onto a roadway from an
