Tennessee police say recent attacks involving eggs thrown from a moving SUV go far beyond horseplay after one woman was left seriously injured. WSMV’s Cameron Taylor reports.
(WSMV/NBC Newschannel) – Police in Hendersonville, Tennessee are investigating an egg attack that left a woman seriously injured.
The victim was walking near her home Tuesday night when she was struck in the face by an egg tossed from a speeding SUV.
“When she got hit, she didn’t even realize it was an egg. She thought she had been hit with a baseball or a brick,” a friend of the victim says. “All I could get out in a crying voice was come get me. I’ve been hit.”
She did not release her identity, due to fear of being targeted herself.
The woman found her friend on the side of the road on her knees.
“Her eye, nose, mouth area was covered in blood. Her arms were covered in blood. So, it was quite traumatic,” she says.
A similar attack on a mother and daughter was reported about 30 minutes later.
“There’s a fine line between doing some things that are horsing around and doing something that’s going to start being dangerous to others,” Hendersonville Police Detective Sergeant Christopher Gagnon said.
Gagnon said whoever did this could face aggravated assault charges.
