Yobs’ ‘malicious’ act could have killed
A WOMAN had a lucky escape after yobs threw a large stone at her car from a bridge.
The incident, which happened on the A2070 at Park Farm, has been condemned by police who say someone could have been killed.
The 27-year-old woman, from Essex, was driving a black Kia Sorento under the bridge at the Park Farm roundabout last Saturday at 12.30pm when a large stone hit and cracked her windscreen, causing damage amounting to £50.
Ch Insp John Frayne said: “This could have quite easily smashed the windscreen and struck the driver, with disastrous consequences.
“There have been incidents of this kind in Ashford before and I cannot emphasise strongly enough that on this occasion the driver was lucky.
“Throwing anything at a moving vehicle is irresponsible and malicious but to throw something large from a bridge at a moving vehicle could kill someone.”
Police are appealing for witnesses to contact them on 01622 690690 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
