A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
A car traveling near Start High School was involved in an incident Thursday morning. It was not an accident with another vehicle, but rather a metal school sign that fell on top of the car. No one was injured, and high winds are being blamed.
Toledo Police responded to a call around 9:00 a.m. from someone saying a school sign fell on a car. Police said they found a metal speed sign with a light attached on top of the car's hood and wind shield.
The sign belongs to the City of Toledo. Transportation Commissioner Dennis Lechlak said the school signs are weighed down with concrete and bolted to the ground with 24 to 36 inch bolts. Lechlak said the strong winds Thursday caused the bolts to fail and the sign to fall. Lechlak said the bolts failing was a fluke.
Meteorologist Robert Shiels said Tuesday's winds, which included gusts up to 50 miles per hour, may have started the loosening of those bolts. Thursday's 40 miles per hour gusts seem to have finished the job.
Both Lechlak and a representative with the city's law department said this is very unusual. The city is looking into who is responsible for the damages, but it is unclear at this time.
