The windshields of three vehicles were broken by falling ice on the Sagamore Bridge on Monday morning, according to Bourne police.
Sergeant Wallace Perry said “significant chunks of ice” fell from the rafters of the bridge and damaged the windshields around 6 a.m. Monday morning. No injuries were reported.
“Basically it was one right after the other,” he said.
As of 7 a.m. the bridge remained open and there had been no other reports of damage, according to Perry. “Knock on wood,” he added.
Perry said ice occasionally forms on the bridge rafters and comes down.
“It’s not that common of a thing,” he said. “Unfortunately there’s nothing we can do about it.”
As the temperatures get warmer later in the day, the ice should melt away, he said.
