CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Raleigh I-440 sign falls on passing vehicle

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- During Thursday's severe weather, one passerby on I-440 witnessed a traffic sign fall on another car.

In the span of ten seconds, video shows rain blinding a driver along I-440. Then, panels of the Crabtree Valley/Glenwood Avenue exit sign get blown off the sign's stand by strong winds and hit a driver's car.

"It just came down like a torrential downpour," said Christopher Buchanan. "As it started getting worse, I noticed hail on the windshield and that's when I look up and saw the sign let loose into that BMW."
