Ohio Driver's Windshield Smashed by Water Balloon
COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Ohio motorist says a water balloon thrown from another car shattered her windshield and sent glass fragments flying into her eyes.
Shannon Minic says her 6-year-old son was riding with her just east of downtown Columbus Saturday afternoon and had to direct her so she could pull over.
The boy also called 911. Medics treated Minic's eyes at the scene.
Police say a water balloon would have been capable of causing damage, given the speeds of the two vehicles.
Minic tells WCMH-TV detectives told her they've had other reports of water balloons being hurled at cars in the same area.
There were no immediate reports of any arrests.
