Cumberland Overpass Gets Fences

Posted Updated

FAYETTEVILLE — Officials are putting up fences around an I-95 overpass in Cumberland County.

A rock thrown from the Fields Roads bridge smashed through the roof of a passing Ford Explorer last year. Nineteen-year-old Michael Vytlingam is now blind and partially paralyzed from the crime.

Two Cumberland County men are facing charges in the case.

The Department Of Transportation will spend 70,$000 for lights and fencing to protect people driving underneath that overpass.
