The families have raised the reward from $1,000 to $2,500 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the investigation.

In November, a rock thrown from south of Rice Hill struck a Subaru Legacy station wagon driven by 20-year-old Molly Grabill. Her passenger, 19-year-old Chris Brewer, grabbed the steering wheel after the rock hit Grabill in the face, but he was unable to avoid an accident. The car rolled and ended up facing the opposite direction.

The families of students injured by a rock thrown from an I-5 overpass have boosted the reward money.
