WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) -- Four teenagers threw bricks at moving cars in Massachusetts, severely injuring one man who was struck in the face by a brick that went through his windshield, police said.

The four teenagers -- two males ages 15 and 16 and two females also ages 15 and 16 -- threw a total of 19 bricks Saturday in Worcester, police said.
