It is a double tragedy... If allegations are proven true and two teens are convicted for throwing a brick onto a car, they made a decision that will change their lives.
Two teenagers in Tuscaloosa County face criminal charges tonight... for allegedly throwing bricks from an overpass.
One of the bricks struck a vehicle, leaving a woman in serious condition..
Melissa Jones had three children in her van when she was hit by the brick.
She sustained serious injuries.
My heart goes out to Melissa Jones and her family. No doubt driving will be different for her for some time to come.
My concern also goes out to teens who make decisions to be mischievous... perhaps it was in fun, but I wonder if they realized the serious consequences of their actions.
Split second decisions... Can affect the rest of ones life.
