The California Highway Patrol is investigating after at least 10 cars were damaged by concrete parking stops that may have been intentionally left on The 8 Freeway in East San Diego County.
Eight to ten cars struck the concrete blocks about 12:30 am on Saturday on the I-8 east of Dunbar Lane in El Cajon, according to 10 News.

Officers believe the parking stops may have been left intentionally in the middle of the road as similar events took place in the same area in January and February – with the CHP receiving four reports of landscaping wall blocks left in several lanes of traffic, which caused major damage to some vehicles, according to the Union Tribune.
The CHP says it doesn’t have any suspect information, but has stepped up patrols in the area.
