CRESWELL, Wash. - Oregon State Police have identified two teenage boys as suspects in the throwing of a cinder block off an Interstate 5 overpass that struck a Roy woman’s car, injuring her.
Police said they received phone calls that led to identifying the boys, ages 16 and 17, as being involved in the incident on Sunday near Cresswell, Ore.
Tiffany Becker and her family were at mile marker 183, heading north on I-5 after a week in California, when the cinder block hit the car’s windshield.
“I thought my air bag went off because it was a boom and I couldn't see. There were shards of glass in my eye. I thought at the time it was fibers from the airbag,” said Becker.
She was covered in blood. It wasn't an airbag; it was a cinder block.
"I wasn't really terrified until I told her to pick her head up and I saw blood gushing what from looked like her throat,” said Tiffany’s husband, Michael Becker.
Tiffany Becker had stitches in her chin, a sore eye and a sore shoulder.
After the teens were identified as suspects, an OSP trooper contacted the boys and their parents at their Creswell homes. Police said they are cooperating with the investigation and no arrests have been made.
After the investigation is concluded, OSP will meet with the Lane County District Attorney's Office when potential charges will be decided.
