Teen Throws Concrete From Bridge, Injures Driver

Posted: Updated:

A teen is arrested and accused of tossing concrete onto a car from a south Tulsa bridge.

Officers told KTUL.com a 15-year-old and two other boys were on the Sheridan Road bridge over the Creek Turnpike around 11:30pm Monday.

The 15-year-old confessed to lobbing a softball-sized chunk of concrete onto a passing car below. It smashed the windshield, sending glass shards into the driver's face.

Police said the driver wasn't seriously injured, but was cut by the glass. He doubled back to Sheridan from the turnpike and found the three boys still throwing things off the bridge.

He confronted them and they scattered. The Tulsa Police helicopter found them hiding in a backyard nearby. Officers only arrested the boy who confessed, police said.

The teen could face charges including assault with a deadly weapon. Depending on the district attorney's opinion, the charge could escalate to a felony.
