PRUNEDALE—The California Highway Patrol is continuing a concentrated investigation into a series of projectiles that have struck scores of vehicles around Highways 101 and 156 over the past several months.
On Friday a projectile shattered a window on a school bus carrying the football team from Carmel High School. Public Information Officer Jessica Madueño said a student on the bus was injured by splintered glass. There were around 20 people on board, including faculty, parents and football players. The bus was going to a section playoff game in San Jose. It was hit about 4:42 p.m., Madueño said, near Vierra Canyon, moments after a silver Mercedes was hit on northbound Highway 101 near Dunbarton Road.
On Monday a van with six people aboard was struck by a projectile that broke a window. That incident happened at 4:58 p.m. as the van was traveling on southbound Highway 101 south of San Juan Road near the Red Barn.
Monday’s incident brings the projectile count to 42.
The CHP is asking the public to notify them of any information about the incident. They said victims should pull over when safe and call 770-8000 during business hours or 911.
