Can thrown at moving vehicle

Salisbury Journal: CCTV image issued by police CCTV image issued by police

POLICE are appealing for information after a can of drink thrown from a moving car damaged another vehicle.

The incident happened in Hindon Lane between Hindon and Tisbury at about 1.30pm on April 12 when it is believed a can was thrown from a maroon vehicle, hitting a Mitsubishi 4x4, damaging the paintwork and smashing a wing mirror.

PC Graham Briant said: “This was a completely random and potentially serious incident. The force the can was thrown with was such that the wing mirror was bent around and smashed; the occupants were very lucky it didn’t hit the windscreen or the side window.

“I don’t need to spell out the dangers of doing something as mindless as this and there’s absolutely no justification for anyone throwing any object at a moving vehicle."

Police have released a CCTV image of a vehicle and are keen to speak to the owner in relation to the incident.

Anyone with any information can contact Salisbury Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Hot bed of crime in that area. What is the crime commissioner doing about it?

This must be the candidate for the most frivolous news item for this year. Somebody threw a can at a car. It just shows how much that crime has dropped, that police are reporting things being thrown at a car.

Once again you miss the point, Grampie. The car was occupied and moving, not parked and unattended. The consequences could have been far worse, even fatal, had the can broken the windscreen. Just because it missed, does that make it acceptable and 'non newsworthy' in your eyes? Next time these morons might actually kill someone. Is that 'frivolous'?

I would not like somebody to throw a can at me or my car, but it is hardly newsworthy. Stretching a story out that chucking a can out of the window could cause somebody's death is a bit far fetched.

I note how a certain local paper publishes reports about so called crime in the Tisbury area and they usually talk about break ins to sheds and outhouses, graffiti. In the schemes of things, it is hardly Midsommer in that area.

Good people in the Tisbury area and the police are nice. Plumb job i would think.
