A man has been left with horrific facial injuries after two teenage boys allegedly hurled a rock threw his windshield while he was driving.
William Wehner, 64, had the bones in his face broken and will need reconstructive surgery as a result of the incident.
He was driving down the street in Burlington, Kentucky, at around 10.30pm on Saturday night when the boys, who had been having a sleepover in one’s home nearby, allegedly hurled the rock from the side of the road.
It was raining heavily at the time and the boys ran away as soon as the rock crashed through the man’s windshield, police say.
He was able to contact the emergency services and was transported to the hospital where he remains.
The boys were apprehended after police investigating the incident asked local school police resource officers who they thought might have been involved.
When deputies went to one of the boy’s homes, they say he confessed and said his friend had been involved too.
The 14-year-old, who allegedly threw the rock, has been charged with 1st degree assault and criminal mischief.
The 15-year-old has been charged with criminal mischief and accessory to assault.
Around an hour before Wehner was hit, the 15-year-old is said to have thrown a rock at a different car but it bounced off the side.
