Police: Teens threw rocks off bridge onto I-787, driver hospitalized


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – State police say they’ve arrested three teenagers who threw rocks at vehicles traveling on an interstate highway in Albany, injuring a motorist hit by a rock that smashed through a closed sunroof.

Troopers say they responded around 8 p.m. Saturday to a stretch of Interstate 787 where it runs along the Hudson River in downtown Albany. Police say several youths were tossing rocks onto the highway from a concrete wall separating I-787 from nearby railroad tracks.

Troopers say one driver suffered a concussion when a rock crashed through the vehicle’s sunroof and hit the motorist in the head.

In all, five vehicles were damaged.

Police on Monday announced they had arrested three Albany youths ranging in age from 13 to 15. They’re charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, criminal trespass and assault.
