The bizarre episode was raised with police after a motorist spotted an unusual addition to the front of his Honda vehicle – a black handgun embedded in the bumper. The weapon appears to have either come from a highway overpass or another vehicle, with someone clearly hoping to dispose of the weapon.

According to state trooper Guy Gill, the driver of the silver Honda was travelling down Interstate 5 when he noticed a black projectile strike his vehicle. He thought nothing of the event until he stopped for gas 18 miles down the road and discovered the gun smashed and embedded in his car.
