Just before midnight Tuesday night, Dallas police say several cars were damaged when unknown suspects tossed rocks from a overpass onto vehicles passing below.

The vehicles were getting onto the Dallas North Tollway from downtown at McKinnon Street. Witnesses described rocks raining down from a Katy Trail overpass.

“I don’t really understand why they would put people in danger, especially just innocent people driving down the road,” said Staci Onderdonk.

She met her husband for a date night after work in downtown Dallas Tuesday. As she followed his car onto the Dallas North Tollway, she saw her husband’s car swerve then she heard a crash in her own SUV.

Both vehicles were hit by rocks. Her husband’s car lost a back passenger window while a rock the size of a cantaloupe crashed through Onderdonk’s front passenger window. The rock bounced against the headrest and landed next to Onderdonk’s leg. A second rock narrowly missed her windshield and left a dent in the hood of her SUV.

“We pulled over and started assessing what was happening, immediately called 911 and very shortly after we heard more bangs, more cars were pulling over,” said Onderdonk. “We could tell this was still happening.”

After calling 911, police said it took nearly 30 minutes for officers to respond.
