EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say they have identified two teenage boys who may have tossed a cinder block off an Interstate 5 overpass in Creswell, Ore., injuring a Washington state woman riding in a car below.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1hSXyAE ) that police say the boys, ages 16 and 17, are cooperating in the investigation, as are their parents. No one has been arrested.

The block crashed through the windshield of a car in which 30-year-old Tiffany Becker of Roy, Wash., was riding early Sunday, hitting her in the face. She was treated at a nearby hospital and released.

Once police finish their investigation, the case will be turned over to the Lane County district attorney for a decision on possible charges.

In November 2012, two University of Oregon students who were members of the university’s track team were injured when someone threw a rock at their car from an I-5 overpass.
