Monkeys Pelt Vehicles with Fruit on Highway
September 25, 2000 8:25 am EST
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A trio of monkeys threw bananas and crabapples
at vehicles on the main interstate highway on the East Coast, a
Virginia state police spokeswoman said.
The monkeys, described by police as brownish-gray, skinny and between
two and three feet tall, were seen by drivers last Sunday along a
stretch of Interstate 95 close to the Virginia-North Carolina border.
No one was injured, though several vehicle windows were smeared with
fruit. Virginia state trooper Mike Scott was alerted to the renegade
primates when he noticed a vehicle on the shoulder of I-95 north of
the small town of Jarratt, Virginia, around 9:30 a.m. Sunday,
according to spokeswoman Corinne Geller.
He saw what looked like a banana smeared on the rear window and when
he approached the car, he found the driver with a cellphone in her
hand and a strange expression on her face, Geller said.
"You might think I'm crazy, but I think two monkeys threw a banana at
my car," the driver told Scott.
Interstate 95, which stretches from Maine to Florida, is known for
high-speed truck traffic and lengthy areas of congestion, not for
The driver said she was a paleontologist who takes pictures of
primates and she told Scott, "I'm pretty sure those were monkeys about
a mile south of here."
Sure enough, a mile to the south, Scott found two more vehicles pulled
to the side of the highway's northbound lanes, and a small crowd
looking into the trees along the side.
They were searching for the monkeys that hit them. "And just about
that time a crabapple comes out of the trees and hits one of the
vehicles," Geller said.
Scott then saw the three miscreants, before they ran across the
interstate. He and another trooper pursued them, as the monkeys swung
from tree to tree, she said. But the three split up then and the
troopers lost them in the underbrush.
