“With everything in the news about bombings and terrorism I just thought, ‘Gosh, what is it?’ I'm just screaming, ‘Pull over! Pull over!’, and come to find out it was a bread fruit—a rock hard bread fruit about the size of a softball.”

Zaugg said that just a few minutes earlier she had switched seats with a family with young children, and she said she is grateful it was not a child who was hit by the flying fruit.

Zaugg filed a police report and authorities are looking into the incident. She's now back home in Utah.
