Eugene Runner Hit By Overpass Rock Out Of Hospital


One of two University of Oregon distance runners injured when a large rock was dropped onto their car from an Interstate 5 overpass has been released from a Eugene-area hospital.

University spokesman Greg Walker says Molly Grabill suffered a broken jawbone Monday night, as well as facial cuts that required stitches. He says she’ll need some dental work but no surgery. She was released from Sacred Heart Medical Center on Wednesday.

Walker tells The Register-Guard that UO runner Chris Brewer suffered only minor scrapes and bruises. Brewer was also in the car.

State police say a large rock from the overpass crashed through the car’s windshield, hitting Grabill in the face. The car overturned.

Both Brewer and Grabill are members of the school’s track and cross-country teams.
