Three 18-year-olds were charged Thursday with throwing rocks at passing cars from a railroad overpass in Glendale Heights, authorities said.

Police say the teens, who were charged with felony vehicular endangerment, were throwing the rocks from a bridge on Glen Ellyn Road at Windy Point Drive at 2:25 a.m. Thursday.

One vehicle was struck on its roof, though no injuries were reported, according to Sgt. Douglas Flint of the Glendale Heights Police Department.

Police identified the suspects as Rahiem Grier, of the 100 block Bayberry Court, Rodney King, of the 300 block of Sandra Court, and Marvin Brown, of the 200 block of East Alpine Drive.

If found guilty, they face between 3 and 7 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.

The teens were also charged with trespassing on railroad property, a misdemeanor. They are being held at the DuPage County jail.

Police say Parrish Lynch, of the 100 block of Cedar Lane, and Aaron Swan, of the 1900 block of North Alpine Drive, both 18, were also charged with trespassing on railroad property. They were released on bond.
