Southend: Bus Hit By Object Thrown From Bridge
An object has been thrown from a bridge in Southend, shattering the windscreen of a minibus.
It happened at Royal Artillery Way last Wednesday lunchtime (January 9th).
A minibus was on the dual carriageway and passing under a footbridge near the Cecil Jones School when it was struck by the object.
The driver, a woman from Leigh, was badly shaken and slightly injured when a piece of glass cut her thumb.
Investigating officer, Pc Nathan Williamson, said: "There were no other vehicles near the minibus at the time and no suggestion that the object was thrown up by a passing car or lorry.
"The driver did not see anyone or see the object land but it caused a loud bang and shattered the screen.
"This was a frightening incident and could have caused serious injury to the driver or other people if she had lost control of the minibus. We want to hear from any witnesses or anyone with information about who was responsible."
Pc Williamson can be contacted at Southend police station on 101.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
