Happens quite a lot with dump trucks that carry gravel and not just on the highways either. My wife had the window of her car cracked by a gravel dropping out of one a number of years ago.

At any rate, good thing not getting injured.

I think that anybody caught doing this should be charged with attempted murder.

Or it could have been thrown by another vehicle's tire. It happened to us in the states. Didn't hit the windshield, but put a nice gouge in the roof of our car.
