Suspects finally identified for July’s windshield-shattering, brick-throwing cases

Suspects have been identified in two brick-throwing cases reported in Pennsylvania last month, state police say. 

The incidents occurred on July 7th along Interstate 70 near the North Belle Vernon interchange in Pennsylvania.

Although the incidents happened over a month ago, the case was brought back to light after an investigation was launched into a shattered semi truck windshield along the same highway on August 11th. That incident was deemed an accident involving road debris. 

“We believe the early morning Wednesday incident was accidental caused by road debris being lifted from another vehicle. It was an accident and there was no criminal intent,”Belle Vernon station commander Lt. Steven P. Driscoll reported.

According to Trib Live, during the initial incident, police received reports of bricks being thrown at two tractor trailers traveling eastbound, causing minor injuries to one of the drivers due to shattered glass. 

“We do anticipate filing criminal charges in those cases that occurred in North Belle Vernon,” Driscoll said.  

The suspects have not been identified and the investigation is still ongoing.
