Police have no clue how a gun ended up in driver's bumper

Talk about gunning the engine.

According to Gill, the driver said he'd continued about 18 miles along Interstate 5 after seeing the "black object" hit his auto.

A driver in Washington state pulled over to get gas only to find a small handgun stuck in his bumper.

The gun was missing its magazine, Gill told The Associated Press, adding that it was a "completely freakish way to recover a weapon". After about 18 miles, he stopped to refuel and found the handgun lodged in his bumper.

Lakewood Police Detective Chris Lawler says the handgun may be connected to a shooting Wednesday night at Harry Todd Park, not far from the freeway.

Troopers handed the gun over to the Lakewood, Washington, police department.

No injuries were reported, and local station KING TV said it was unknown whether the gun was thrown, dropped from an overpass, or kicked up by a passing vehicle.
