The WSP is looking for witnesses who might have seen these incidents occur, or have information regarding these rock-throwing events, or those who have been involved.
"At this time it is still early in the investigation, I am reaching out to the public for assistance with anything they may have seen in the area in the late night early morning hours. This could be any suspicious vehicles, pedestrians or residences in the area of State Route 223 south of Granger, Washington," said Detective Derrick Jacobs with the Washington State Patrol.
He continued to say, "This is concerning as we have had two injured persons so far. Commercial vehicles often weigh 80,000 to 100,000 lbs, and objects coming through the windshield can incapacitate a driver leading to more serious injuries or collisions with other motorists."
