The driver, who pulled off to the side of the road after the impact, and a passenger were not injured, Betz said. The perpetrators had to heave the rock over the fence of the bridge, Betz said.

After an extensive search, Harford County officials have settled on a site for an elementary school that is intended to relieve crowding in the Bel Air area. The 23-acre property on Vale Road near Red Pump Road north of Bel Air will not be the easiest to reach or the least costly on which to build, but county ownership makes it the most practical choice, officials say. "This is not the best of sites, and only about half of it is developable," said Kathleen Sanner, school system director of planning and construction.
