An Arizona woman said she required 21 stitches and must replace three broken teeth after at least one of two teens hit her in the face with a rock on July 15 while she was traveling through Weatherford.
Two 14-year-old boys suspected of throwing rocks and railroad spikes onto Interstate 20 near the Bankhead Drive exit in Weatherford were initially detained by police, said Lt. Christopher Crawford, Weatherford police spokesman. The teens were released to their parents on Thursday, according to Jeff Swain, Parker County assistant district attorney.
The two juveniles are facing aggravated assault and felony criminal mischief charges, Crawford said.
The teens are accused of hitting Dyan Jay-Heim in the face with a golfball-sized rock that went through the windshield of the tractor-trailer rig in which she was a passenger.
'I remember asking my husband what had happened to me,' Jay-Heim said during a telephone interview with the Star-Telegram on Tuesday. 'I reached for my face and it started gushing blood. My husband took me to a truck stop and told the attendant that I had been shot and to call for help.'
