ROSEBURG,  Oregon - Oregon State Police troopers want help to find the person who threw a rock from an Interstate 5 overpass, injuring a California woman and causing her to lose control of her car.

The rock went through the driver's side windshield, hitting 20-year-old Molly Grabill in the face Monday night at the the Isadore Road overpass.  The rock was larger than a baseball, according to OSP.

A passenger grabbed the steering wheel, but lost control and the car rolled on the freeway.

Grabill, a University of Oregon student, was taken to a Springfield hospital for treatment of facial injuries and was in good condition Tuesday. The passenger was treated and released for minor injuries.

Anyone with information was asked to call OSP Detective Tom Willis at (541) 440-3334 or the OSP Southern Command Center dispatch at (541) 440-3333.
