Everyone knows that the road is not a safe place to be. You can have all the safety features available, but you're still at the mercy of the other drivers around you. Now there's another hazard to contend with, and if it hits you, you'll never see it coming.

Over the course of a few days, a man has hurled cinderblocks from atop overpasses and onto moving cars below. The damage to the cars has been extensive, but so far, miraculously, there have been no casualties.

Driving down the Highway 401, Chad Charlemagne was one of the victims of the reckless rock-thrower.

"All of the sudden a big bang came down and smashed into my car, basically I thought it was a bomb," he said.

Some may think this is a harmless prank, but the truth is far deadlier.

"It's only a matter of timing," said Sgt. Kerry Schmidt. "If that rock were to hit into an occupied compartment it would be absolutely fatal."

It's easy to see how a cinderblock hitting a car traveling 70 mph would kill a driver. One look at the shocking pictures is enough to make you uneasy driving under an overpass.

The story doesn't end here!
