ACT Policing is investigating an incident where a car received significant damage when it was hit by a large rock while driving on Northbourne Avenue on Monday morning (9 June).

About 12:55am, the vehicle was travelling north along Northbourne Avenue, Lyneham, when a large rock was thrown at the car by an unknown person/s on the side of the road.

The large rock collided with the front windscreen of the vehicle directly in front of the driver causing the window to break and narrowly avoiding serious injury to the driver.

ACT Policing members responded to the incident and conducted a search of the area. Investigations are ongoing.
