Thrown Stones Lands Teacher In Hospital

One of four youths charged with throwing heavy stones off an overpass, resulting in serious injury to an Ohio teacher, testified in court Tuesday.

“I knew they were going to throw rocks, but never thought they were going to hurt anyone as they did it,” said Keefer McGee.

The four young men had been out, bent on a night of mayhem. In a string of thefts and vandalism, the four young men stole food from a grocery store, smashed windows and mailboxes and drove vehicles through a farmer’s field before finally deciding to drop rocks onto oncoming vehicles from an overpass. The teacher whose car they hit with the rock sustained severe head wounds, losing the use of one eye, with damage to the other and her long term prognosis is “unclear.”

Violence can explode unpredictably and sometimes innocent bystanders get caught up in the outbreak through no fault of their own. Incidents like that can cause serious, sometimes, lifelong injury. In such incidents, as in all cases of personal injury, workers comp or wrongful death, it is always in the best interests of an injured person to obtain legal counsel, to help make certain their interests are looked after. Legal counsel can provide the help and insight needed at such a time and it is important to retain the proper assistance.  Our Personal Injury Lawyers can’t give you a loved one back; but they can help you get the compensation you deserve when a loved one is taken from you.
