Someone in Canton threw a chunk of asphalt at a motorist and struck her in the face

CANTON, Ohio - A woman was driving down a Canton street last week when she was struck in the face with a piece of asphalt, according to police.

On May 17 around 6:55 p.m. a 51-year-old woman was driving south on Broad Avenue NW in her silver Honda Accord near 4th Street NW when she saw a group of juveniles.

Next thing she knew, she was hit in the face by a piece of asphalt. She told police that before she was hit she saw someone winding up their arm as if they were making a throwing motion.

She was taken to the hospital for her injuries, which authorities said are not serious.
