Car hit by rocks picked up by wild storm

LEE and Colleen Platten were in shock on Monday afternoon when their windscreen was pelted with rocks the size of saucers. 

The couple was driving down Malpas Rd when a twister went through Boyne Island Memorial Park and picked up rocks and hurled them at their car. 

Colleen said Lee thought it was lightning.

"Nope not lightning, but rocks the size of saucers flying and hitting the car window screen," she said. 

"We went back but there was too much debris on the road to see the rocks. But golly gosh it was such a shock."
