Drivers traveling on Interstate 25 in Larimer County, Colo., should be on high alert. Five vehicles have had a window shattered while traveling on the highway, four in one week. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause.

Larimer County Sheriff Public Information Officer David Moore told Land Line that five separate police reports were made involving windows of moving vehicles along Interstate 25 in Larimer County. Two reports were filed on April 28 and three more on April 29.

Officer Moore noted that one of the reports filed on April 29 claimed that the incident had occurred approximately one month prior. The person who filed that report decided to step forward after hearing about others experiencing a similar incident.

As of press time, investigators can only determine the incident involving a young woman driving along the interstate on April 22 was caused by a “firearm projectile.” In that case, the victim sustained a gunshot wound. Investigations are still ongoing to determine the cause of the other vehicles with shattered windows.

According to a press release, Larimer County has increased patrol in the areas affected. Officer Moore told Land Line that Sheriff Justin Smith has advised motorists to not overreact, but not to underreact, either.

“We always encourage motorists to be aware of their surroundings, aware of other vehicles around them or vehicles that may be stopped on the side of the road or pedestrians,” Moore said.

Drivers who see something alarming or suspicious, or anyone doing any type of hazardous behavior, should contact local law enforcement. Information specific to the windows shattered on I-25 should be directed to Larimer County Sheriff’s Office at 970-416-1985 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868. Tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward.
