In a bizarre incident on Wilsons Creek Road on Australia Day a car full of teens threw what appeared to be a rock, which smashed the window of an oncoming vehicle.
On Friday afternoon (January 26), Echonetdaily reader Koko Kopytko was driving from Wilsons Creek with her three children aged 13, 11 and 10 to go for a swim in the Brunswick River and take the customary jump from the bridge.
‘A car full of young men or teenage boys driving the oncoming way along Wilsons Creek Road hurled what I thought was a rock at the windscreen, right in front of my face,’ Ms Kopytko said, ‘shattering it and sending tiny flecks of glass onto my and my sons’ faces, arms and laps!’
‘Bizarrely it turned out to be a cake that was the cause,’ she said.
Ms Kopytko said it was a miracle that no one was injured in the random attack.
‘We rang and reported it to Byron Bay police but they said they couldn’t do anything because we didn’t have the number plate details.
‘We were then put through to a call centre where we were at least able to give a general description of the car and the kids in it.
‘I think that the public and young bogans need to know that this is not funny,’ she said.
