Man injured when struck by concrete slab on I-5

UPDATE:

The Washington State Patrol now says that the piece of concrete that struck a 44-year-old man on Interstate 5 tonight was roadway debris, not a slab of concrete hurled off a freeway overpass.

Earlier tonight, the Seattle Fire Department reported that it appeared the concrete debris was thrown off the overpass above I-5 south, at North 80th Street. Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said that a slab of concrete, “the size of a brick,” shattered the windshield of a car the man was riding in. The debris reportedly struck the man in the chin.

“There was glass everywhere,” Moore said.

The man was in stable condition at Harborview Medical Center, Moore added.

The man’s wife, who was driving, and the couple’s two children, who were in the back seat, were not hurt.
