A BERKELEY woman was left to pick broken glass out of her hair after a hammer was thrown through the rear windscreen of her moving car.

The 22-year-old, who wishes to remain anonymous, was driving on the A38 on Monday evening when the incident occurred.

When approaching Falfield the woman flashed her lights after being cut up by a dark car containing at least three people.

At the junction with the B4059 the car pulled over into the right-hand turning lane while the victim continued along the A38.

The car then pulled back onto the A38, approaching the victim’s car at speed before a hammer was thrown through the windscreen on the approach to Stone.

“I just heard a bang and all the glass came over the car,” the victim said.

“It was very very scary, the speed they were approaching me from behind.”

“They absolutely flew past me. They must have been been driving well over 60mph.

“It was a very erratic driver. They were driving much much faster than they should have been.

The rear windscreen was completely destroyed as a result, and the victim was forced to remove broken glass from her hair and clothing.

“It was quite frightening being on my own and wondering if they were going to come back.

“I wanted to make people aware

The incident took place between 8.30pm and 8.45pm on Monday night.

The car involved is dark in colour, believed to be green, grey or brown.

Gloucestershire police have been approached for comment.
