WALNUT CREEK (KRON) — Drivers in the East Bay are concerned for their safety after several reports of objects hitting vehicles while driving on highways.
According to California Highway Patrol officials, three reports of random objects have struck vehicles on Highway 24 and Interstate 680 in the town of Walnut Creek within a couple of months.
KRON4’s Hermela Aregawi spoke to a woman who went through a traumatic event while driving.
