Windows on three vehicles traveling the Riverside (91) Freeway in Corona Monday were damaged when one or more individuals targeted them with pellets or BBs, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The first attack happened about 5 a.m. on the westbound 91, near Main Street, said CHP Officer Juan Quintero.

He said a Ford Transit van was in the slow lane when two of its driver’s side passenger windows were hit with pellets or BBs.

No one was injured, and the driver did not see who fired the projectiles, according to Quintero.

Roughly 15 minutes later, a Ford F-150 was entering the express lanes on the westbound 91 at Main when the pickup’s rear window was cracked by a pellet or BB fired from an unknown direction, Quintero said.

The motorist was not injured.

Ten minutes later, the driver of a Ford Excursion was approaching Lincoln Avenue in the middle lane of the westbound 91 when the SUV’s rear window shattered from the impact of one or more pellets or BBs, Quintero said.

“This victim stated a white sedan, possibly an Acura, was traveling to his right at the time of the incident,” the CHP spokesman said.

The victim was not injured.

Officers investigated all three attacks but did not immediately turn up clues.

Anyone with information was urged to call the CHP’s Riverside office at 951-637-8000.
