It's a potentially dangerous situation for commuters in Buena Park, as someone on Wednesday targeted cars with chunks of concrete.Police said cars were hit at a railroad overpass just after 9 p.m., just south of the intersection of Beach Boulevard and Stage Road.

It's unclear if this was a one-time incident or an ongoing problem in the city, but police said someone was throwing large chunks of concrete off of the railroad overpass.

The concrete fell 20 feet before hitting two cars that were passing by on Wednesday night.

"They were large pieces of concrete, about the size of baseballs or softballs. They kind of broke up upon impact, but the damage was enough to shatter the windshield and cause debris, flying glass debris, on the occupants inside," said Sgt. William Kohanek from the Buena Park Police Department.

The drivers were not injured, but the cars were badly damaged.

Police are hoping surveillance video from neighboring businesses will help them catch the culprits. Authorities said they will be treating the incident as an assault case.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Buena Park Police Department at (714) 562-3902.
