Crime Stoppers: Rocks Thrown at Motorists

By  | 

On Wednesday afternoon, January 18, Kentucky state troopers received a call of someone throwing rocks at passing vehicles on northbound I-65 between the 73 and 74-mile markers. KSP got more calls at six o'clock the next night.

Subjects were seen throwing rocks more than five inches in diameter from the hills and trees on the side of the road. Several vehicles were damaged, two of them heavily, the rocks going straight through the windshields.

No one was injured this time, but in November of 2003, a little boy was struck in the head when someone threw a large rock from the Hays-Smiths Grove I-65 overpass in Warren County, through the sun roof of an SUV. The boy was listed in stable condition in the medical center at the time.
