Falling concrete damages car on Que. highway
St-Constant, Que. resident Ghislain Laplante, 25, was driving on Highway 132 near Highway 10 and the Champlain Bridge when a 30-40 cm-long piece of concrete hit his windshield.
It landed on the passenger side, which was vacant, and Laplante was not harmed.
Transport Quebec Spokesperson Caroline Larose said engineers were sent to check out the overpass, and said it has no structural problems.
"The structure is made of steel beams and the concrete was kind of the outside slab of the structure," said Larose early Tuesday morning.
Both lanes of Highway 132 had to be closed temporarily Monday, but Transport Quebec engineers said the overpass is safe, and reopened the highway shortly afterwards.
