ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - Ed Clark had one word to describe how he felt Monday morning when the side vent window to his truck suddenly shattered. “Scared!” He believes his company tow truck was struck by gunfire as he drove west on Interstate 70 alongside O’Fallon Park in St. Louis City.

St. Louis City police are calling the circumstance “property damage” since there is no evidence of gunfire.  It happened about 10-45 am between Adelaide and West Florissant.  Clark was heading to a customer’s property where he was scheduled to pick up a car.  Clark quoted his customer as saying there had been some shootings and random shots fired in the area.

“It sounded like an explosion. Then it blew inside my truck and outside my truck.  It hit me in the arm, a little bit of glass hit me in the arm, but I’m okay,” Clark said.  After completing a report to police, he headed back on the road to meet his original customer.
