This is murder if someone deliberately did this. What I don't understand is why. It has never popped into my head to throw anything over a bridge.

Here the fences over the motorway have been replaced with very high board so no one can jump and nothing can be thrown.

Remember the Miners Strike, one of them dropped a "brick" from a bridge and killed a Taxi driver.

Idea

Often the culprits behind these attacks turn will out to be braindead morons in their early-to-mid teens...

Horrible little fringe-dwelling thugs with some imagined gripes against humanity, convincing themselves it might be fun to try and kill some total stranger(s).

It came out years later it was an undercover cop not a miner.

Some wild kids seem to think it's fun throwing things at cars and running off,  and not just from bridges. They've done it whilst standing right next to my car at traffic lights.


On a motorway one day I suddenly caught sight of two kids on an overhead bridge and they didn't look as if they were up to any good, frankly.

My heart stopped as I drove underneath the bridge cos I knew that if they had dropped something it could come thru my windscreen and that would be curtains for me and my passengers. I despair!
