CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A section of the Interstate 75 overpass came loose and struck a vehicle Sunday afternoon.

Police say a piece of the overpass near Longworth Hall came crashing down and onto a parked car under the bridge after the Bengals game.

No one was hurt as a result of.

The section hit the windshield of a car that Jeff Erras and Andy Brothers had rode to the Bengals game in. 

"It's a new danger you know, you have to watch out for," Erras said, "I'm just fortunate it's a car and not a person."

"If somebody was tailgating, throwing cornhole or you know, it could have been real bad," said Brothers.

The section was taped off after the incident.

FOX19 was told that the area has been marked for repairs.

Police say public safety officials will be out there tomorrow morning to check it out.
