(SEATTLE, WA.) -- These days when you drive under a freeway overpass, you just never know when somebody will be on that overpass looking to kill you with a large rock, piece of concrete or a baseball bat dropped right through your windshield with very bad intentions.
Of course, when they get caught they'll say they didn't mean to hurt anyone, that it was just a prank and that they are very sorry. You or a family member might be dead, they'll be sorry.
Check the photos at right. Some dirt bag threw a baseball bat off the Pike Street overpass in Seattle onto Interstate 5 and right through the windshield of a woman's car yesterday, according to WSP trooper Rick Johnson.
Luckily this woman came out of this with minor injuries. That bat could have killed her. Seattle Police scoured the area but could not locate a suspect.
Reminder: look up when you drive under freeway overpasses. That one glance could save your life.
