Ohioan hit by rock thrown at car moves to rehab

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio teacher who was severely injured when a rock was dropped on a car on a central Pennsylvania highway has moved to a rehabilitation hospital.

Fifty-two-year-old Sharon Budd of Uniontown was riding on Interstate 80 on July 10 when a large rock blasted through the windshield and hit her in the face.

The Independent in Massillon (http://bit.ly/XWqJB0 ) reports she was moved from a hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania, to another nearby with specialties that include treating brain injuries.

Budd had several surgeries, and part of her brain was removed. She lost sight in at least one eye. Her husband says she can breathe on her own and mouths basic words, and therapists hope to get her to sit and stand.

Four teenagers are charged as adults in the rock-throwing.
