A passer-by in Basel suffered a serious eye injury after he was hit by an egg thrown from a speeding car, the latest in a series of similar attacks, a report says.


The victim, an unidentified man who was walking along a Basel street on Monday evening, had to be taken to the hospital, the Corriere del Ticino reported. Investigators are now looking for witnesses.

The thrower, who was reportedly driving in a small white car with two or three other people, also previously attacked another passer-by with a carton of milk and a woman with another egg, the paper said.
