A young mother said she believes herself as well as her toddler is very lucky when her car was besieged by irresponsible rock thrower in broad daylight. Lauren Mangelsdorf was driving home from her job on the Southern Expressway with her 2-year-old little boy in their car when rocks were thrown at her car from an overpass. A rock ricocheted and smashed into her windshield while she was driving at 100km/h.
While she and her son escaped with no injuries, she said that she is a bit shaken by the whole frightening ordeal. She said that she has gone through all the ifs – “what if it had hit my windshield and I would have swerved my vehicle. What if it had come through the side my son was sitting on?” It might have been so much worse; it is not just games and fun. It is serious – someone will be seriously injured.

And people have been killed – In Austin, Texas in the United States the rock when through the driver’s side of the windshield and hit the driver on his forehead killing him.
