Truck driver hit after rock was thrown at B-double

Rock smashes through the window of a B-double and causes glass to hit the driver.


A police investigation is underway after a rock thrown at a truck in the northern New South Wales town of Moree hit the driver.

The 65-year-old man was behind the wheel of his B-double on April 11 when the rock was thrown through the passenger front window, causing the glass to shatter and hit his arm.

The incident occurred just before 7pm while the truck was heading south along Tycannah Street and approaching the intersection of Adelaide Street.

NSW Police says local officers were called to the scene and began investigating.

"The driver was uninjured and did not require treatment," NSW Police says.

"It’s believed about six to seven children were seen running from the area at the time of the incident, east along Adelaide Street."

NSW Police is appealing for witnesses to come forward and contact them via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Meanwhile, all drivers are being encouraged to report any rock-throwing incidents.

"The message police would like to get out is for people to keep reporting these incidents when they do happen," a spokeswoman for NSW Police says.
