Bullet cracks semi truck’s windshield, nearly hits driver on interstate near St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (KMOV/Gray News) - Truck driver Kenneth Campbell was on his way home from a week on the road when his tractor trailer’s windshield cracked and his passenger window shattered, spraying him with glass, KMOV reported.
Campbell soon realized it was caused by a bullet that narrowly missed him.
“Six inches to the left, it would have been a headshot,” Campbell said.
The incident happened Thursday on I-270 in Hazelwood, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis.
Campbell waited until it was safe to pull over and called the police. It took a week for police to take a report.
Hazelwood Police Department says they are investigating the incident.
Campbell says he still has the bullet fragment that was wedged in the truck door.
