A Georgetown woman injured April 26 when someone hurled a rock through the windshield of a car she was riding in has been released from Christiana Hospital with injuries to her face, police say.

The woman, 22, was a passenger in a Mazda 626 driven by a 23-year-old Lewes man, said Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.

At 11:15 p.m., the couple was driving northbound on Route 1 about a mile south of the Indian River Inlet bridge near the Ocean Ridge development when someone threw the rock from an unknown direction. The rock broke through the front windshield and struck the woman in the face, Fournier said.

The woman was taken to Beebe Medical Center; she was later transferred to Christiana Hospital for treatment before her release.

"She still has to undergo some surgeries to her face," Fournier said.
