SISSETON, SD -
Authorities are investigating two reports of heavy metal rods being dropped onto vehicles on Interstate 29 in northeast South Dakota.
Roberts County Sheriff Jay Tasa says the approximately 2-foot long rods known as "J-bolts" were tossed from an overpass at night late last week near the Wilmot exit.
He says one rod hit a semi-tractor trailer and the other hit a car. Tasa said the female driver of the car suffered minor injuries.
