Drivers Hit Large Rocks on U.S. 1, Damage Cars

NORTH STAFFORD, Va. – Who was it that placed about 20 large rocks on the northbound lanes of U.S. 1 today? That’s what Stafford authorities want to know.
Two cars were damaged, and one of them popped a tire on its driver’s side, when they ran over the rocks while traveling on U.S. 1 north at Coal Landing Road, just south of Va. 610 in North Stafford. No one was injured.
Stafford County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Bill Kennedy said someone moved the rocks from their normal resting places along the side of the four-lane highway sometime between 2 and 2:45 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities are clear about this timeframe as they had patrols in the area and didn’t notice rocks in the roadway before 2 a.m., Kennedy added.
After 911 calls came in about the rocks in the road, deputies were called to the scene to remove them from the roadway.
