Close encounter of the projectile kind

An unknown object damaged the rear driver’s side of a Chevrolet Equinox while the owner was was driving in the 800 block of Crissey Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Sept. 11, Geneva police reports said. The driver told police he suspected the damage—estimated at more than $1,500—was from a rock thrown from a lawnmower.

Police spoke with the worker who was cutting grass in the 800 block of Crissey Avenue when the incident took place. The worker said he did not believe the lawnmower threw a rock and denied any involvement, so the driver's claim could not be substantiated by police.
