MURRAY, Utah – A man in Murray experienced an unpleasant surprise Friday afternoon when his car proved to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Dakota Ogden said he was at work when a loud noise alerted him to something amiss.

“I was working inside, and I just heard a huge crash," he said. "And my coworkers were just like, ‘Hey, you might want to come take a look at this because a whole sign just fell.’ And I looked outside, and it was on top of my car.”

A portion of a billboard landed on Ogden’s car after the fall. It’s unclear what caused it to fall, but it did cause some damages. Ogden told FOX 13 News he planned to approach the city about the incident to have them check out the sign and hopefully determine what happened.
