MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A York College professor says a chunk of ice that smashed through the windshield of a brand-new car in Cumberland County probably didn’t fall from a plane.
Bill Kreiger, a professor of earth sciences who has been studying the ice since March, believes the ice formed in the upper atmosphere.
Kreiger said he’ll have a more definitive answer after he travels to Penn State for further testing in the next few weeks.
The ice crashed into a Kia Soul on the sale lot of McCafferty Kia, at 6320 Carlisle Pike, on March 25. A sales employee, Matt McCormick, said the football-sized chunk made a whistling noise as it fell from the sky.
No one was injured.
