Anna Lo MLA said: “This incident was appalling. The woman who was hit by the stone sustained a very serious injury. The incident could have been even worse had the stone hit the driver and made them crash.
“People need to realise the very serious consequences that could come to pass if they throw stones at cars. These acts ruin lives and they must stop now.
“Belfast has had problems in the past with people throwing bricks and stones at vehicles from overpasses, so the police should consider building fences to safeguard drivers and passengers alike.
“I would urge anybody who has any information about this attack to contact police.”
