Evesham Editorial 26th Oct, 2022   0

A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl was taken to hospital after the windscreen of the car she was travelling in on the M5 was shattered by a stone.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the incident on Sunday (October 23) at 4.10pm when officers were called to the northbound carriageway around one mile prior to junction eight.

Large pieces of stone had fallen onto the carriageway from another vehicle. One of the pieces had been thrown up into the air by another vehicle, shattering the passenger window of the blue BMW 3 series and striking the child in the face.

The child was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital where she was treated for a facial injury and bruising.

PC John Baldwin from Gloucestershire Police’s Roads Policing Unit said: “We are interested in hearing from any motorists who were travelling northbound on the M5 towards junction eight at around 4pm on that Sunday who may have seen the stone debris falling off a vehicle.

“We are also keen to hear from anyone who may have dashcam footage of the incident.”
