LARCHMONT, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Imagine driving down the road and a huge piece of cement smashes through your windshield.
With 15 stitches and an eye swollen shut, Myra Flores wants Larchmont drivers to be aware of what she’s calling a crumbling overpass on the New York State Thruway, CBS2’s Emily Smith reported.
Flores said her husband was driving a Ford Explorer while she sat in the passenger seat, when suddenly something crashed through the windshield.
“I didn’t know if we got hit by a car and it was the airbag hit me. I didn’t know what was going on,” she said.
Flores said a rock dropped from the Chatsworth Avenue ramp overpass on I-95 in Larchmont as they headed home to Stamford, Connecticut driving at about 65 miles per hour.
