2012 Audi A8L: 8-Month-Old Windshield Found Dead

June 04, 2012


LOS ANGLES -- The LAPD reported finding a dead windshield on Friday afternoon. Responding to a 911 call at 2012 Inside Line Audi A8L Lane, police found the windshield unresponsive. Official cause of death is said to be blunt trauma.

The only witness, a man later identified as Brent Romans, claims to have seen the assailant.

"I was just there minding my own business driving on I5 near Bakersfield when this rock jumped out of nowhere and attacked the windshield. Poor guy. It was like, bam! Then it was over. The rock took off before I could follow it. I could tell that the windshield was in bad shape. I thought about calling Safelite but within the hour the windshield was hemorrhaging cracks all over. I knew it was going to die. The sad thing is I don't know what the windshield did to deserve it. It seemed so nice."

Police are asking motorists to be on the lookout for a rock described as brown in color and about .75 inch in diameter. It is considered very dangerous. If spotted, the LAPD says to call 911 immediately.

The windshield was eight months old. Donations to the Inside Line A8L repair budget are currently being accepted.
