“The people going northbound weren’t expecting big chunks of concrete landing inside their vehicle. You just need to be prepared, keep your eyes on everything. Don’t text and drive, don’t talk on the phone, keep your eyes on the road because you don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Colorado State Patrol Cpl. Heath Griscavage.
“I didn’t really have time to think. It just happened so fast. All I saw was something coming at me, and then, all of a sudden, a loud noise, and then the airbag went off. Everything was just going on and going by me.”
