Optima 4-cyl

Driving southbound on I-95 in Virginia, I heard a loud explosion like a gunshot. Moments later, I heard the sound of air rushing past from above my head and debris vibrating on the interior sunroof screen. I later found that it was broken glass crackling and falling against the interior sunroof screen. I pulled over immediately to check the roof for damage. What I found was a gaping hole (8-12 inches in diameter) in the glass of the front sunroof. I was not near any overpass or work trucks, nor did I ever observe anything striking the car at any time- not during this incident or ever before. I seriously thought there had been an explosion or gunshot somewhere nearby. This is a serious issue. The exploding sound alone might cause a person to go off the road or otherwise swerve into traffic.
