Debris-throwing onto freeways continues

The Washington State Patrol wants to know who threw the rocks and bricks that hit at least four cars on Seattle freeways Sunday, and in one instance smashed through a windshield.

The rocks and bricks struck cars at two places: Interstate 90 at 18th Avenue, and Interstate 5 at 12th Avenue.

Only minor injuries resulted from the brick that hit the windshield. It was the latest incident in a series of debris-throwing episodes, 186 in all, that have hit vehicles along Seattle freeways this year. The WSP has made several arrests to date but the incidents continue.
