Fort Worth police are looking for witnesses to an accident from Friday where an identified object pierced a car's windshield and hit the driver in the face.

Fort Worth police are looking for witnesses to a crash on Friday where an object pierced a car's windshield and hit the driver in the face.

The incident happened around 10 a.m. on Interstate 35W, just north of the Interstate 30, I-35W Mixmaster interchange near downtown, according to police.

The driver, headed northbound, was hit in the face by an unknown object that may have fallen off a nearby vehicle, Fort Worth police officer Sharron Neal said.

The object, likely a large piece of metal, was heavy enough to puncture a hole in the driver's windshield — a gold 2010 Volvo sport utility vehicle.

After being hit in the face, the driver hit another car and then ran off the road, coming to a stop in a grassy area off the highway, police said.

If you were in the area at the time and know what may have hit the driver, you're asked to call the Fort Worth police.

If the incident was truly an accident, no charges would be filed, Neal said.
