Stones hurled at M3 drivers
10:24am Thursday 21st June 2012 in News
POLICE have described the actions of youngsters who threw stones at motorists on a Hampshire motorway as “clear stupidity”.
Schoolchildren were seen throwing objects from a bridge that runs over the M3 linking Chandler’s Ford and Boyatt Wood. The driver called police, who were deployed to the scene on Monday evening, but the youngsters had gone.
As a result officers have been visiting schools in the area to warn youngsters about the dangers of throwing objects at cars.
Sgt Chris Spellerberg, from Eastleigh police, said: “This is clear stupidity. The consequences could easily have been serious injury or worse.”
