Police in California are searching for one or more intruders who fired at about a hundred cars on several busy expressways in the southern part of this state over the past month – presumably with air guns. This was reported on Wednesday by CNN.
As the local traffic police officer, Jay Sanchez told the TV channel, during these incidents – in Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties – one person was slightly injured, but some cars were severely damaged, as they were left without windshields. The patrolman noted that only by a lucky chance so far there have been no serious accidents with human casualties, since these routes are high-speed, and damage to the glass or tires is fraught with dangerous accidents.
The police said that the search for the attacker is complicated by the fact that the attacks were recorded in different areas and at different times of the day, although mainly in the morning, so law enforcement officers cannot even establish the place from where the shooting was conducted – from the roadside, from the overpasses above them or, possibly, from the traffic flow itself. The authorities are very much counting on the help of drivers using these routes in the investigation that has been launched and warn them of the need to exercise increased vigilance in the areas where the attacks were recorded.
