COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A Columbia woman says her son’s car was hit by a chunk of concrete that fell from a bridge on to Interstate 77.

Kathy Basile told WIS-TV (https://bit.ly/1WgUUPf ) that her son was driving home Thursday when the concrete hit the passenger side front of the car, severely denting the hood. He was not injured.

The chunk fell from the Killian Road bridge over I-77 near mile marker 22.

The Department of Transportation says it checked the 50-year-old bridge after Basile reported the incident and removed some loose concrete. The agency says the bridge is scheduled for repairs in January.

The South Carolina House will debate a bill later this month to have the state borrow $2 billion for bridge repair and interstate widening over the next decade.
