A flying piece of metal from a dump truck's undercarriage smashed through a car windshield Monday on the George Washington Bridge, hitting the driver in the head, authorities confirmed.
The 28-year-old Bronx driver was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with a traumatic head injury after an 18-inch piece of metal crashed through the windshield of his New Jersey-bound Chrysler 200 and struck him on the upper level at 10:45 a.m., Port Authority spokeswoman Lenis Rodrigues said.
The driver, who was the vehicle's lone occupant, was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center and is in critical but stable condition, Rodrigues said.
Port Authority Tunnel and Bridge Agents and Fort Lee EMS treated and removed the victim from the vehicle. Englewood EMS also responded.
Port Authority police were reviewing surveillance video to try and find the truck.
