A Roy man driving in Oregon had a cinder block dropped on his car from a freeway overpass which struck his passenger in the face, Oregon State Police said.

The incident took place about 4:30 a.m. Sunday on Interstate 5 under the E. Oregon Avenue overpass in Creswell, Ore.

A 28-year-old Roy man was driving north when the cinder block came through the windshield and hit a 30-year-old woman in the face. She was treated at a hospital and released. The driver was not injured.

Troopers said four people – two on bicycles and two on skateboards – were seen in the area around the time of the incident but do not know if they were involved.
