Youthful Offender Status Denied in Brick Tossing
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Youthful offender status has been denied for two teens accused of hurling a brick from a highway overpass and injuring a woman in 2012.
The Tuscaloosa News reported Sunday that the teens are expected to be tried as adults in January.
The victim was driving with her three children when the 5-pound landscaping brick hit her car Sept. 16, 2012. The 41-year-old woman suffered a collapsed lung, a broken sternum, dislocated shoulders and a broken right collarbone.
The woman had to undergo multiple surgeries, says she can no longer care for her disabled son, can't run her house keeping service and has not been able to receive disability benefits.
