OPP search­ing for High­way 403 rock throw­ers

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Brant OPP are hop­ing a mo­torist might have more de­tails on sus­pects who were throw­ing rocks at ve­hi­cles on High­way 403 from an over­pass on Thurs­day morn­ing.

Po­lice were called at 8:17 a.m. by a driver who had man­aged to pull over safely af­ter a rock hurled from the Oak Park Road over­pass struck and dam­aged his wind­shield.

“The driver did an ex­cep­tional job of keep­ing con­trol of his ve­hi­cle and pulling over safely,” Const. Ed Sanchuk said. “When you are trav­el­ling at 100 kilo­me­tres per hour, a rock causes quite sig­nif­i­cant dam­age and shock fac­tor.”

The OPP don’t have a de­scrip­tion of the two sus­pects and are hop­ing knowl­edge of the in­ci­dent can re­fresh the mem­ory of some­one who was in the area at the time.

“This isn’t a joke,” Sanchuk said. “Peo­ple are play­ing with other peo­ple’s lives here.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this or any other in­ci­dent should im­me­di­ately con­tact the On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice at 1-888-3101122.
