BEAVER, Pa. (AP) - State police are investigating after three vehicles were hit with rocks thrown or dropped onto Interstate 376 in western Pennsylvania.

Troopers from the Beaver barracks say two food service trucks were hit with rocks shortly before 1 a.m. Monday in Brighton Township. About 30 minutes later, a passenger car was hit with a large piece of limestone that hit its hood and went through the windshield.

Police didn’t report injuries in either incident.

In July 2014, a Uniontown, Ohio teacher was hit by a nearly 5-pound rock dropped from an overpass onto Interstate 80 in central Pennsylvania. She lost an eye and eventually had surgeries for other debilitating injuries. Four young men were prosecuted in that case and the teacher’s husband later killed himself.
