Investigators have talked to three people of interest in connection with an incident that nearly killed a Porum truck driver.

Gerald Webb suffered massive injuries when a chunk of a tombstone smashed through his truck's windshield last week. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Webb was going westbound on the Cherokee Turnpike when someone hurled the granite off a highway overpass.

Two of the people questioned are juveniles.  The third is 20-year-old Jeremy McGirt of Locust Grove. 

Findings of the investigation will be sent to Mayes County prosecutors for review in the next few weeks.
