EAST CHILLISQUAGUE TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A benefit was held in Pennsylvania Saturday for a Northeast Ohio woman who was seriously injured by a rock that was tossed from a bridge.
Sharon Budd, 52, was critically injured while riding with her family on Interstate 80 in Central Pennsylvania earlier this month. Police said two teenage boys threw a rock from an overpass, and it crashed through their windshield.
Budd is a teacher at Edison Middle School in Massillon. She’s also a cancer survivor.
According to WNEP, Larry Troxell, who has a tavern in Pennsyvlania near where the incident happened, said he wanted to help after hearing Budd’s story.
He organized a benefit motorcycle ride for Budd, and more than 250 bikers participated raising $10,000. Budd’s husband and daughter attended the event.
So far, four teenagers have been arrested and charged in the crime.
Budd has undergone several procedures and faces additional surgeries and a lengthy rehabilitation.
