Police recover gun lodged barrel-first in car's bumper

Police recover gun lodged barrel-first in car's bumper

The driver was on Interstate 5, when they noticed "a small "black object" flying through the air", the Washington State Patrol said on Facebook.

A driver in Washington State made quite the discovery when he stopped for gas: a gun had pierced his front bumper and had lodged there, presumably for miles.

However, it wasn't until 18 miles later when he needed gas that he found the firearm stuck sideways in his auto.

Drews emphasized that the announcements were ads that VISA had bought from TransLink, and not an initiative from TransLink itself. In a statement Thursday morning, the company said they were pausing the ads after the stories broke Thursday morning.


The weapon was embedded in his bumper, barrel-end first, with the trigger sticking out just below the driver's-side headlight. "We're glad the driver - and everyone else on the road - was okay!"

Naturally, the man contacted state police, who recovered the gun and turned it over to the Lakewood (Washington) police dept.

No injuries were reported, and local station KING TV said it was unknown whether the gun was thrown, dropped from an overpass, or kicked up by a passing vehicle.
