Three separate incidents took place on I-390 on Saturday, but for the first time, one of them involved children.
State police say they were called to Route 390, near Vintage Lane, for the report of a suspicious person possibly wearing camouflage in a tree.
While investigating the incident, troopers got another call for a vehicle that was hit by debris on 390, near the Ridge Road exit.
Hours later, a third call, this time on 390 North, near Kendrick Road overpass in Brighton. Sheriff’s deputies say a woman had her two children in the car with her when an object struck her windshield.
“We’re just following up on leads, following up on investigations and interviewing the area and neighborhood residents and going from there,” said Sgt. Samuel Spezio, NYS police.
Authorities say the object struck the woman’s windshield, causing damage. They say the latest incident is similar to the others that have happened on I-390.
“We have not confirmed if it was a BB or something else. At this time, it looks like it was a rock, a stone or something from a vehicle that was in front of her car,” said Spezio.
Drivers like Chansen Diaz say they don’t feel safe on I-390. Diaz has a fifteen month old son.
“The last think I would ever want is to be in the car with him and have something like this happen. He’s the only child I have, so that would really do something to me. It’s crazy, it really is,” said Diaz.
There are now 14 reports of vehicles being hit by something in the past two months.
Police are encouraging drivers to report anything suspicious.
If you have any information, you’re asked to call the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office or 911.
