Driver tells of lucky escape

A DRIVER whose windscreen was smashed when a rock the size of a football was dropped from a bridge has spoken of her relief at her miracle escape.

Lisa Horne, 26, said she believed that “somebody was looking over me” after she and her 48-year-old mother escaped unharmed when their Vauxhall Astra was targeted in Essex last Thursday evening.

Forty minutes later, another woman, 57, was seriously injured when a “bucket-sized” piece of concrete was dropped on to her vehicle from a different bridge on the same stretch of road.

Mrs Horne said the perpetrator must be caught before someone is killed.
