Police have appealed for information after a bottle was thrown through the windscreen of a moving HGV.
The incident happened on the B723 Road near Lockerbie at about 18:30 on Thursday.
The HGV driver, who was pulling a 13 tonne load, managed to keep control of the truck and bring it to a stop.
Police, who said the bottle was thrown from a red car with a black bonnet, said the act could have caused a "potentially catastrophic" crash.
Police are keen to talk to the two occupants of the car which may have been an old Rover or Honda.
The driver was described as being male, in his mid 20s, with short, dark hair and was wearing a green T-shirt.
The lorry driver was not injured.
A police spokesman urged anyone with information to get in touch.
