ROSEBURG, OR (KPTV) -

A rock tossed from an Interstate 5 overpass smashed through a car windshield and hit the female driver in the face Monday night.

Oregon State Police said 20-year-old Molly Grabill, a University of Oregon student from California, was heading north on I-5 just south of Rice Hill on Monday night.

As she approached the Isadore Road overpass, a rock came down from the overpass and crashed through the driver's side windshield.

The rock hit Grabill in the face, leaving her car passenger, Chris Brewer, to grab the steering wheel in hopes of controlling the car. He was unable to keep the car under control and the Subaru Legacy station wagon went onto the shoulder of the road, then rolled on the freeway before coming to rest facing the opposite direction.

Grabill suffered facial injuries in the wreck, but she survived. Brewer was also injured, and was treated and released from the hospital.

Anyone with information on who is responsible for throwing the rock is asked to call 541-440-3334.
