OAKMONT, Pa. (AP) — Police near Pittsburgh are searching for whoever threw a pumpkin from a moving car and hit a 64-year-old man, who may have suffered a concussion in the attack.

Oakmont police Chief David DiSanti (http://cbsloc.al/rO06uY ) tells KDKA-TV that Rose and Daniel Wagner were taking a walk about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday when somebody threw a pumpkin from a passing car.

Rose Wagner says the incident happened so fast they didn't even realize right away that a pumpkin had knocked down her husband. Daniel Wagner fell face-down and is sore and bruised. He was taken to a hospital and his wife says he may have a concussion.

The chief says whoever threw the pumpkin may have just stolen it from outside a nearby home.
