Destructive water valve cover

MARIETTA, Ga. -- Last month, in the early morning hours, Antonio Cruz hit something on East Piedmont Road in Marietta. He says the impact sounded like a gun shot and his two right side tires went immediately flat.

When he got out of the car, he discovered what caused the accident. A heavy, steel, water valve cover turned upside down in the road.

Antonio flagged down a passing patrol officer and the two of them discovered another displaced cover further down the road.

Antonio would like to get reimbursed for the damages to his car, but there's a problem. No one will claim responsibility for placing the water valve cap in the road.
