In a move eerily reminiscent of a Final Destination scene, two San Antonio teenagers allegedly threw a tree log at a car windshield while a man was driving along I-10, News4SanAntonio reported.

Richard Ricondo, the man behind the steering wheel, told News4 he had spotted something unusual on the side of the road while he was driving on Thursday evening: two boys carrying a big log. Then, according to Ricondo, they threw it. The log busted his windshield, forming a crater of shattered glass on the passenger side. News4 described Ricondo as being physically shaken, and he appeared to be without physical injuries.



The teens were arrested charged with criminal mischief.

The last time someone in Texas was chucking things at moving cars was in Austin in 2016, when a man named Patrick Johnson threw rocks at cars driving on I-35 nearly 100 times, causing several accidents, and leaving one person with permanent brain damage and another partially blind. Johnson pleaded guilty to four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in April 2017.
