OLDMANS — New Jersey State Police are still trying to figure out how and why a 50-pound dumbbell crashed through the windshield of an SUV on the New Jersey Turnpike Monday morning.

Around 2 p.m. Monday, about seven hours after the incident at mile marker 6.6 on the southbound side of the Turnpike, NJSP’s official Twitter account distributed a phone number to call for anyone who might have witnessed the crash, or might have more information.

The driver of the SUV, identified as 75-year-old Jack Decarlo of Hamilton Township (Mercer)  in a report by NJ.com citing State Police, suffered serious facial injuries. His 57-year-old wife was also hurt.

Son Jim Decarlo told KYW-TV that his parents were headed to South Carolina for vacation and called the incident “a freak thing” and they hope to learn whether or not it was intentional.
