Police in Nashville, Tennessee, are on the hunt for a person who tossed a massive chunk of concrete off the side of a bridge and into a local driver’s windshield — causing a fatal wreck on Tuesday, cops said.


Joe C. Shelton Jr., 54, was traveling to work in his Nissan GT-R sports car on Interstate 24 near the Shelby Avenue Bridge, when the incident occurred, according to officials.


“The concrete chunk traveled through Shelton’s windshield and hit him in the face at approximately 4:54 a.m.,” the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said in a statement. “At this point in the investigation, it appears likely that the chunk of concrete was thrown.”


Shelton was unable to control his car after getting hit, and he proceeded to crash into another vehicle on the road.


He was later pronounced dead at the scene.


“[The Nissan] sideswiped a Toyota pickup truck and a guardrail before coming to final rest on I-24’s Silliman Evans Bridge,” cops said. “Investigators are reviewing available surveillance cameras in the area of the I-24/Shelby Avenue interchange, but do not yet have any description of a person(s) who may have thrown the concrete chunk from the bridge.”


Officials have asked anyone with knowledge about the incident to contact the police department. They noted how the concrete chunk did not look like it came from the bridge, but instead “closely resembled a roadway curb.”
