Xenia police are investigating after they were called Friday morning to a report of rocks thrown onto U.S. 35.

One large rock hit a semitruck, the driver told police.

“The truck had a significant scratch on the passenger side of the truck, consistent with a rock being thrown and striking the truck,” the police said in a Facebook post. “Officers located a large number of rocks in the westbound lanes, underneath the Bellbrook Ave. overpass.”
