62 vehicles have been struck by projectiles along Highway 101 and the neighboring Highway 156 in the Prunedale area this year, resulting in the California Highway Patrol to create a task force to investigate the attacks.

The number of cars being hit increased in frequency beginning in early October, with some investigators believing that they may be linked.

Just this past Saturday, six cars were hit in as many minutes in the evening. This is on the heels of four attacks Friday and two attacks on Thursday of last week.

no serious injuries have been reported, but there have been at least five incidences of minor lacerations from shattered glass, the CHP said.
