STOCKTON, CA - Three Stockton teenagers are charged with felonies after allegedly tossing rocks at cars for about 10 minutes Thursday evening.

The rocks were thrown from the Tam O'Shanter railroad overpass on Hammer Lane, in North Stockton. Stockton police Officer Joe Silva said witnesses helped police quickly find the two 13-year-old suspects and a 14-year-old companion.

Silva said nine vehicles were hit by rocks; a car and a fire engine were involved in a crash; and 22 people were victimized by broken glass.

"We've seen in years past, when people throw objects at moving vehicles, traffic accidents happen and fatalities too," Silva explained. "We take this seriously. All three are charged with felonies and are booked into juvenile hall."

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries.
