Rods Thrown Off Interstate Overpass

There wasn't a whole lot of interesting news going on in South Dakota or the world today, but I found a pretty interesting article on Keloland News. There have been two reports of heavy metal rods, called "J-bolts," dropping on vehicles on Interstate 29 near the Wilmot exit in northern South Dakota. The two-feet long rods were said to be thrown off an overpass late one night last week. One rod his a semi-tractor trailer and the other hit a vehicle. The woman driving the car sustained minor injuries. The Roberts County sheriff is investigating the crime.

I don't think this was an accident and whoever did it has way to much time on their hands. This whole incident could have caused way more damage than it actually did. The person who did it should be thankful nothing happened and turn themselves in for their acts of stupidness.
