BEAVER — State police are investigating after three vehicles were hit with rocks thrown or dropped onto Interstate 376 in western Pennsylvania.

Troopers from the Beaver barracks say two food service trucks were hit with rocks shortly before 1 a.m. Monday in Brighton Township. About 30 minutes later, a passenger car was hit with a large piece of limestone that hit its hood and went through the windshield.

Police didn't report injuries in either incident.

In July 2014, a Uniontown, Ohio teacher was hit by a nearly 5-pound rock dropped from an overpass onto Interstate 80 in central Pennsylvania. She lost an eye and eventually had surgeries for other debilitating injuries. Four young men were prosecuted in that case and the teacher's husband later killed himself.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
