  1. We went to visit this place late one very hot night. We were leaving, but pulled over just were you leave the park and the trees line the road. As we were getting back into the car, one girl’s elbow hit her little sister’s eye, which cause her to scream hysterically. I ran over to that side, leaving no one on the driver’s side. As the girl continued to scream, the driver’s side was pelted with gravel. There was only a large rhododendron bush there, no one was there to throw rocks. The next day I looked, and that side of my car was covered in chip marks. I have never returned there. There were at least seven witnesses to this.
