A motorist who threw a bottle at another driver and cracked their windscreen has been branded as extremely irresponsible by police.

Officers have launched an appeal today after a woman’s windscreen was cracked by a hall-full bottle of Lucozade thrown from a white van.

The driver of a silver BMW estate 3 Series had been travelling along the B656 London Road towards Hitchin when the bottle was thrown at about 8.30am on Tuesday, May 12.

The van had been heading in the opposite direction at the time, and was close to the Willow Tree Farm near Langley. The driver of the van, which had blue writing on the back, failed to stop after the windscreen was cracked by the bottle.

The woman was unhurt but police said she was left ‘very shaken’ by the incident.
