PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A rock smashed through the windshield of an Uber driver's car on Interstate 84 in Portland.

It happened late Thursday night as Jim McDonough was finishing his shift.

McDonough said he was near the 28th Street overpass when he was jolted by a violent crash.

He pulled over with a broken windshield and found a rock in his backseat. His phone was mounted on his dashboard and it was destroyed, as well.

McDonough drove to a nearby gas station and called police. He suffered minor bruising on his arm, but he knows it could have been much worse.

"Someone's going to get severely hurt and I don't want to see anybody go to jail and get their life ruined or anything, but, at the same time, if I hadn't been lucky with where it hit, my kids could be without a father. My wife without a husband," he said.

Portland police are investigating the case, but there is currently no suspect information.
