Reward increased for overpass rock thrower info

Posted: Updated:
DOUGLAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

The families of two University of Oregon students who were injured when a rock crashed through their car windshield have increased the reward for information leading to the arrest of the rock thrower.

Oregon State Police said someone tossed the rock off of an Interstate 5 overpass in Douglas County in November.

The rock smashed through the car's windshield, hitting the driver, 20-year-old Molly Grabill, in the face. Grabill's passenger, 19-year-old Chris Brewer, was also injured. Both were treated at a nearby hospital and released.

The victims' families have now increased their initial reward offer from $1,000 to up to $2,500 for information provided to OSP that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Anyone with a tip in the case should contact OSP Detective Tom Willis at 541-440-3334 or the OSP Southern Command Center dispatch at 541-440-3333.
