Brick thrown through car’s windshield on Buchanan Trail


State Police in Franklin County are looking for someone who chucked bricks at passing cars on the Buchanan Trail. Both cases occurred minutes apart, around 11:30pm Saturday, August 17th. Both victims were traveling westbound on the Buchanan Trail. The first victim, a 20 year-old man from Mercersburg, told police he was in the 6100 block of Buchanan Trail West when a large vehicle, possibly a pickup or SUV was going in the opposite direction. As the suspect vehicle passed, someone inside the vehicle threw a brick at the victim’s vehicle. The brick went through the windshield and into the victim’s car. The victim suffered minor injuries and did not require medical assistance.

The second victim, a 53 year-old Greencastle man, reported a line of vehicles were approaching in the east bound lanes in the 9700 block of Buchanan Trail West when someone from one of the vehicles threw a brick. The brick damaged his car, but did not get into the car’s interior or injure the victim.

Anyone with information is asked to call State Police Chambersburg at 717-264-5161.
