RENO, Nev. (AP) — Reno police are looking for the culprits who threw furniture off an overpass onto a street, causing a traffic accident.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports ( ) that police think a group of people may have been filming themselves tossing items off the Wells Avenue overpass bridge onto Fourth Street.

Just after midnight Sunday, a sports utility vehicle suffered damage to its rear roof after a television was thrown off the overpass and landed on top of the vehicle. The driver was not injured.

Reno police said they soon discovered someone had thrown large vehicle parts, a large television and a couch from the bridge. Officers noticed a television in the road at the same location a week earlier.
