A motorist was seriously injured when someone threw a rock at his car on the 118 Freeway in Moorpark. Two other vehicles were also struck by rocks and damaged.

Nicolas Angell, 40, was driving westbound on the 118 just west of Princeton Avenue about 12:25 a.m. Thursday when a softball-sized rock thrown from the right shoulder of the roadway crushed his windshield and hit his face, Sgt. Mike Curtin of the California Highway Patrol's Moorpark station said.
The rock broke several of Angell's teeth and caused multiple fractures to his face and nose, CHP officials said.
