Stone thrown at moving train in Rochdale injures driver
A driver was injured after a stone was thrown at a moving train, smashing an engine cab window.
The Northern train was struck as it approached Clegg Hall Lane bridge in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, at about 18:30 BST on 22 June, British Transport Police said.
A man in a red hooded jumper is believed to have thrown the stone, a force spokesman said.
The driver minor cuts to their neck and arms but did not need treatment.
Northern's Chris Jackson said throwing a stone at a train was "beyond belief" and "in other circumstances this could have been a tragic incident".
He added: "It's beyond belief that someone would throw any object at a moving train, let alone a stone or brick."
Police would like to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time.
