2 San Diego track stars hurt by rock dropped from overpass

Posted: Updated:

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police say a rock dropped from an Interstate 5 overpass hit a car carrying two University of Oregon distance runners, causing injuries to both.

The Register-Guard reports that the car's 20-year-old driver, Molly Grabill of Poway, Calif., was hospitalized in good condition. Police say a rock larger than a baseball went through the windshield of Grabill's Subaru Legacy station wagon and hit her in the face Monday night.

Police say passenger Chris Brewer, also a native of Southern California, was treated at a hospital and released.

Police say Brewer grabbed the steering wheel after the rock hit Grabill, but he was unable to maintain control of the car, which overturned.

Grabill and Brewer are members of the UO's track and cross country teams.
