Once again a family has been hit by a large rock thrown from a highway overpass. This time in Germany.
The tendency of throwing rocks at cars from highway overpasses seems to spread in Europe.
Sunday night a married couple with two children aged four and six years old were hit by a concrete block thrown from an overpass in the southern part of Germany, reports Bild.
The incident happened as the 33-year-old father drove the car along the A7 motorway near Giengen an der Brenz, when suddenly a 12-kilo concrete block was thrown from a bridge.
He tried to avoid it but without success, and the car ended up rolling over several times on the road. The father and the two children were subsequently taken to hospital with serious injuries, but is out of danger.
The 25-year-old mother, however, is at the moment fighting for her life.
According to a police spokesman, police are investigating the case as a crime.
- This is not a random accident, says Uwe Krause, to the German newspaper Heidenheimer Zeitung.
Police are now asking for witnesses.
In Denmark there has been a number of similar incidents, and about a month ago a 33-year-old woman was killed, her 36-year-old man was seriously injured, while the couple's 5-year-old son escaped with bruising. Police have still not solved the case and have no suspects.
