(NBC) - A man in Sacramento was arrested for attempted murder for allegedly throwing a stolen tripod from a highway overpass . The object impaled a man identified as a military veteran through his lung as he was being transported in a van that passed under the bridge.

"It was like a dream, for lack of a better description," Page told NBC News affiliate KCRA Friday night. "It was very scary."

The tripod, which police suspect was stolen from a transportation survey crew, went directly through the veteran's lung and broke his ribs, Page told KCRA.

The California Highway Patrol arrested Matthew Adam Thompson, 32, whom they identified as a transient currently living in Sacramento, for allegedly throwing the tripod from the overpass.

Police said they are continuing to investigate the incident.

Authorities were able to identify Thompson as a suspect after watching surveillance video of the tripod's theft, the highway patrol said in a statement. When they first made contact, police said Thompson attempted to flee and led them on a foot chase.
