State police charged two 18-year-old men and two youths yesterday in three rock-throwing incidents this week along U.S. 50 near Sandy Point State Park.

George C. Scott, 18, of the 4500 block of Log End Road, Annapolis, and Jay Cromwell, 18, of the Allen Apartments, Annapolis, were charged with reckless endangerment and malicious destruction of property, state police said. A 15-year-old boy and 11-year-old boy were charged with the same offenses, said Michael J. McKelvin, a state police spokesman.

The four were arrested after an investigation into three incidents at an overpass near Sandy Point, Mr. McKelvin said.

Bennie Lee Hall, 51, of Houlton, Maine, suffered minor cuts Tuesday night when a large rock hit his tractor-trailer while he was westbound near the park, state police said.

Two other truck drivers reported being hit by rocks near the same overpass Monday night, state police said.

Neither Ronald Ferrara, 30, of Cambridge nor Ronnie Willey, 27, of Delanco, N.J., was injured, but windows on their trucks also were shattered, state police said.

Anne Arundel County police are continuing to investigate an April 3 rock-throwing incident that killed Kevin Michael Gallagher, 38, of Deale.
