Have you witnessed a rock-throwing incident?

Looking at a map shows that the rock-throwing spree that Austin police said happened over the weekend targeted a 15-mile stretch of Interstate 35:

A note about this map: When we searched the addresses where police say the incidents happened, Google Maps sometimes gave us different locations (the addresses more closely resemble the blocks along the highway’s frontage road, police said), so we’ve adjusted the location of the markers on this map to better reflect police’s information.

The result shows us that the weekend incidents went as far north as Rundberg Lane and stretched south of Slaughter Lane. The majority of the cases were confined to the four miles between the Riverside Drive and Airport Boulevard exits. All but two of the 13 cases reported Friday through Sunday occurred while the victims were driving north.

In total, police are now investigating 83 rock-throwing incidents since the first one was reported almost two years ago.

Have you witnessed any of these incidents? If so, what did you see?
