Two more highway incidents Thursday
Rochester, N.Y. Two different drivers reported something hitting their windshields Thursday.
One of the incidents was in Greece and the other was in Gates.
Drivers said that they cant focus on the road because of their fear. Others have stopped using 390 because of the ongoing incidents and now take longer routes to get where they need to go.
Actually, we dont take this way anymore. We take the scenic route. We come straight up Lyell, said Curtis Wilson.
Even police say that this is on their minds when they drive the expressway.
Greece Police officers searched streets and wooded areas adjacent to 390 on bikes following the latest incident.
We saturated the area with police presence, officers that know the area, the ins and outs, pathways that run along the expressways, said Sergeant Jared Rene of the Greece Police Department.
One of Thursdays incidents happened on 390 South near the pedestrian bridge north of Ridge Road.
The front windshield of a car was hit by something, but it didnt shatter.
The second incident happened on 490 in Gates. The window of a pickup truck cracked after being hit by something.
While some drivers are avoiding 390, others are saying that they are more aware of their surroundings on the highway and looking around more as they drive.
Police dont know if all of these damaged windows are related, but say some are similar and afew involved BBs.
In many cases, the windows hit shattered, but that didnt happen with the two incidents Thursday.
Investigators said that they believe whomever is behind these incidents may be in a moving car, which is why squad cars are more visible on 390. Police are also using surveillance to follow good leads.
Their biggest concern is stopping this before someone gets hurt.
