Several drivers on I-85 North in DeKalb County got more than the usual evening freeway challenges Monday.
The commuters said some people threw rocks at their cars from a cliff near the Clairmont Road exit, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Some of the rocks crashed through car windows, narrowly missing people inside.
“I honestly thought I was being shot at because it was just so loud,” Jane Yi told the news station.
Janice Durant said a rock came through her passenger window.
“It was probably baseball- to softball-sized paving stones (that) had been thrown from the cliff above,” she said.
Durant said witnesses saw some teenagers throwing rocks from the cliff along the exit ramp, Channel 2 reported.
DeKalb police are investigating.
Durant said her 9-year-old daughter fortunately was crouched down in her seat because she wasn’t feeling well.
“Her words to me were, ‘God was protecting me that night, because thank goodness I was bent down.’”
