BPD responds to newest report of broken windshields on expressway

Window shattered

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Several women and a baby were driving through the Highland Avenue overpass over the weekend when one of their car’s side windows was shattered.

They pulled over after it happened to assess the damage.

“Glass was just everywhere. All of a sudden it was just a ‘bam.’ Something just popped. It sounded like a gunshot. I didn’t realize what had happened,” said Jerlene Street and Mary Graham

CBS42 showed Birmingham Police Department Chief Deputy Ray Tubbs the video shot over the weekend of the most recent incident, and he responded.

“Whatever it was just came through this window. What’s your message to whoever this is?” CBS42’s Kaitlin McCulley questioned as she showed Tubbs the video.

“Well, again, the seriousness of it. Now you’re impacting a child and someone’s family,” Tubbs said. “I want to stress again: these are felony incidents and we’re gonna see these through to the end, to whatever kind of successful prosecution we can see it. It is very concerning to me that someone would use any kind of projective and damage someone’s personal property, impact their family, small children and things like that.”

Tubbs says police are making the headway on catching those responsible for the damage. He’s encouraging the public to report any information that my help lead to an arrest.

Tips can be made by calling Crime Stoppers at (205) 254-7777.
