Woman hurt by rock dropped on car has 6th surgery

The Associated Press

CANTON, Ohio (AP) A northeast Ohio teacher whose skull was crushed by a rock dropped onto her vehicle from a Pennsylvania overpass is recovering from her sixth surgery.

The Repository (http://bit.ly/11ADUc7 ) in Canton reports Sharon Budd of Lake Township had surgery about a week before Thanksgiving Day to remove plastic skull pieces that became contaminated.

Her husband says she was walking, talking and in good spirits days later. And she had an extra reason to celebrate on the holiday: It was also her 53rd birthday.

Budd was riding with her husband and daughter when the 4.6-pound rock crashed through the front window and struck her head July 10. She lost her right eye, suffered brain damage and went through rehabilitation at a Danville, Pennsylvania, hospital.

Four teenagers have been charged in the case.
