A vehicle parked on a street in Santa Ana sustained minor damage Tuesday when a Molotov cocktail was hurled at it, authorities said.

The vehicle, an early model Ford Expedition, was parked in the 900 block of Bewley Street in Santa Ana when it was struck by the bottle around 1:35 a.m., said Orange County Fire Authority arson investigator Capt. Rich McCollom.

Windows were broken, and a side panel was burned, but the vehicle was otherwise undamaged, McCollom said.

McCollom said the vehicle’s owner had no knowledge of a motive for the attack.
