NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Another driver’s car was hit by a rock thrown by someone on Bell Road. The latest makes 10 reported incidents to Metro police in less than two months.
News 2 has shared the terrifying stories from a number of victims, two of whom were left severely injured.
Now, News 2 is hearing from the first victim in the month of October to come forward to police.
Katheryn Gorsuch wasn’t hurt in the Oct. 10 incident that happened around 1:30 a.m., but her truck was damaged.
She said she was driving home from work when the rock was thrown, leaving a large dent in her truck’s hood and cracking her windshield.
Gorsuch said when the rock hit her truck, she thought it fell from somewhere, but after seeing news reports realized it was likely thrown by the person who drove past her at the time.
Gorsuch told News 2 it’s frightening that someone is throwing rocks at drivers.
“I cannot believe that people would purposely hurt other people. I know there’s a lot of bad people in the world, but it’s scary. I’m one of the lucky ones, very blessed that it didn’t go through the windshield or any other damage, but it’s very scary,” she said.
She added that it was too dark to get a description of the car that the rock likely came from.
