ALERT!! Concrete Blocks on the I-8 Freeway Near Dunbar Lane AGAIN

Shared from El Cajon CHP June 10,2018

Alpine, Calif. – Since the beginning of 2018 to February 7th there had been four reports of landscaping retaining wall blocks lying within the traffic lanes of I-8 westbound, east of Dunbar Lane. This led to several traffic collisions causing moderate to major damage to the vehicles involved. The CHP responded to these incidents on various nights of the week from the hours of 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Each time, large landscaping retaining wall blocks were located in the traffic lanes. On February 7 the CHP issued a Press Release requesting the public’s help in locating the person or persons responsible. From that point the issued had ceased. (See original article on the ACN)

On June 9 at approximately 12:26 AM, the CHP El Cajon area received a call of several vehicles on I-8 westbound, east of Dunbar Lane, which had hit a concrete object in the roadway causing damage to their vehicles. When units arrived on scene, 8-10 vehicles were determined to have sustained disabling damage consisting of bent wheels and flat tires due to hitting a concrete parking stop that had been placed in the roadway. Four concrete parking stops (weighing approximately 60 lbs.) and three cinder blocks were located on the shoulder.

Patrol has been increased in the area however; there is no suspect information at this time. Anyone who may have seen a vehicle, persons or anything suspicious near the location is urged to contact the CHP El Cajon area at (619) 401-2000.

If you have questions or need further information, please contact Officer Travis Garrow at (619) 401-2000.

    Happened to me on Thursday the 31st. Ruined my rim and blew my tire, cost me hundreds of dollars plus lost wages at work. It is amazing I didn’t hit anyone else or have worse damage.

    It is a shame that this is happening, no concern for ones life. I would suggest that you check around with neighbors and businesses to see if anyone is missing concrete wall blocks or concrete blocks that you may have on your property. I do not see these hoodlums using their own concrete blocks, likely stolen from someone. Report the disappearance of blocks to the sheriffs.
