DAYTON — Two drivers reported large rocks damaged their cars as they were driving on U.S. 35 east near Abbey Avenue just after 6 p.m. Sunday.
One woman called Dayton police once she arrived home. She told the officer she swerved to avoid a large rock in the roadway on U.S. 35 eastbound. She stated a second large rock came out of nowhere and hit her bumper. The rock caused a 6-inch dent on her bumper, according to a Dayton police report. The woman from Moraine told the officer she did not see anyone throwing rocks at the time.
At approximately the same time, a second driver, a 59-year-old woman pulled over after a large baseball-sized rock came crashing through her windshield on the passenger side.
The responding officer found the rock on the roadside. The woman told the officer she believed the rock was thrown from Lakeside Park on to the highway. The woman had significant damage to her windshield but the rock did not penetrate the glass.
Neither driver was injured.
Police were not able to find anyone in the park throwing rocks.
These are the most recent reports of rock-throwing incidents along U.S. 35 in Dayton.
