(WNDU) Pumpkins are commonly made into pies, but they can also be made into bombs.

64-year-old Susan Brown of Edwardsburg, Michigan lived to express that opinion.

On Tuesday, Brown's car was hit by a pumpkin apparently thrown off an overpass as she was traveling down the Indiana Toll Road in LaPorte County, Indiana. 

"The physics, they did not throw a nice little sweet Halloween pumpkin, although it may have seemed to them like it was. This is literally a bomb," Brown says.

The pumpkin came crashing through the windshield of Brown's car and came to rest on the driver's side floor board. 

"It could have very easily have killed me just think if there were kids in that car," she says.

As a result, Brown is black and blue. 

"I know it struck me, my jaw is really sore, I thought I had maybe a broken jaw," she says. "I'm still picking glass out of wounds. I've got a black eye, I've got bruises all over, I hurt."
