The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is currently investigating numerous reports of vehicles being damaged on Southern California freeways from what appears to be BB or pellet-style projectiles.
These incidents have occurred on freeways located in Orange, Riverside, and south Los Angeles counties at various times and days of the week. Motorists have reported vehicle damage, and one minor injury has been reported.
“We are taking each of these incidents seriously and actively searching for those responsible. The public should still feel safe while driving their vehicles on our California freeways,” said Border Division Assistant Chief Donald Goodbrand.
The CHP encourages all motorists to pay close attention to their surroundings while driving. If a driver suspects their vehicle has been struck by a projectile, please contact the CHP as soon as safely possible. The public is reminded not to engage with any suspects related to these incidents.
If anyone has observed suspicious activity that may be related to these incidents, please call the CHP Border Division Investigative Services Unit at (714) 288-6336.
The mission of the California Highway Patrol is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security.
