Several drivers passing beneath an Interstate 95 overpass near White Marsh got an unwelcome surprise Christmas Eve morning when construction debris fell from the highway, damaging their vehicles.

No one was injured in the incident, but four vehicles were damaged, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority, which was conducting the construction.

About 8:40 a.m., an MdTA construction crew was cutting metal on the I-95 overpass above Campbell Boulevard, in the Nottingham area of Baltimore County, as part of the authority's ongoing construction of express toll lanes in the area, said Becky Freeberger, a MdTA spokeswoman.

Metal debris from the work unexpectedly "fell over the overpass, hit the side of one car, and then three other cars ran over it," Freeberger said.

No one was injured, but the four cars suffered unknown amounts of damage, she said.

All four drivers were given information on how to file a claim with the MdTA for the damage, Freeberger said.
