50-pound dumbbell crashes through windshield on NJ Turnpike, injuring elderly driver

A flying dumbbell crashing through the front windshield of a auto sent a 75-year-old motorist to the hospital and snarled traffic in Salem County on the New Jersey Turnpike Monday morning.

The elderly man was driving down the interstate when the weight came flying at him.

What investigators don't know yet is whether the dumbbell was tossed from a bridge over the turnpike or if it managed to fall off another vehicle, nj.com reports. The Washington Post reported that the incident happened at approximately 7:30 a.m.
