That's crazy!! That happened to my sunroof, but I wasn't in the car. My friend had actually borrowed it and it happened while he was driving down I-25!! Luckily noone was hurt.

Glad you are all okay!!

Yea, I am so glad that everyone else was home with me. The broken glass would have landed all over my four year old.

We had the exact same thing happen to our minivan in November. The window on the sliding door on the driver's side just shattered. No idea how it happened as it was parked and unoccupied at the time.

thanks goodness everyone is safe!

there are lots of incidents in this area of teens throwing stuff off of bridges onto passing cars, or using sling shots and related. in most instances, people have been injured, and in one instance, a woman was even killed! it was so tragic! it's a big problem around here, but it's hard to catch the people who do it.

so sad! i'm so glad that everyone is safe!

I'm sure you know this but if you find the projectile that broke the window while you are cleaning up the glass, please save it for the police. I'm so sorry your little one and husband had to go through that.

Wow, that's freaky. FWIW, it's the labor charge on the windows that open that really cost you. If that window is a stationary one it really shouldn't cost that much, especially if you get a salvage one.

Did you call the police? They can make a record of the incident and if there are other incidents they might be able to find the person responsible (recoup damages, etc).

Glad everyone is relatively ok (aside from being shaken up).

Unfortunately, it's not stationary. Luckily though, we talked to the body shop today, and it isn't going to be all that expensive! Yea! They can't fix it until tomorrow which means we have to rent a van for an extra day which sucks, but all in all it could have been worse.

I still can't get the hard of hearing guy to answer his door to find out if his broken window is related to ours. I'm going to put a note on his door today.

My daughter is okay today. After the shock wore off, I think she was just psyched to be a part of something so "exciting." She's a pretty resilient kid. The bad thing is that we had that happen, and then dh and I watched Hotel Rwanda last night. All I wanted to do last night was cry and hug my children.

I am glad to hear it won't be so much. Hopefully you can get some more ideas on what the heck is going on from that guy.

If you haven't already call the police, you probably don't want to wait much longer. Definitely do it before you have it fixed. They usually want pictures to go with their report and sometimes they are picky about taking the photos themselves.
