A northeast Ohio woman was critically injured when a rock was deliberately dropped from a highway overpass onto the windshield of the family's car in Pennsylvania.

Fifty-two-year-old Sharon Budd was struck in the face by the rock dropped onto Interstate 80 near Milton, Pennsylvania, on Thursday. Four teens are charged with assault for dropping the 7- to 8-pound rock from an overpass.

Her husband, Randy Budd, tells the Akron Beacon Journal she still is in critical condition at a hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania, and was to have surgery Tuesday.

She was sitting in the front passenger seat. Randy Budd and their 19-year-old daughter Kaylee — who was driving — were not injured.

The family was en route to York City. Sharon Budd is a language arts teacher in Perry.
