(Lewisburg) --Three of four midstate teenagers accused of having dropped a rock onto a car on an overpass along Interstate 80 in Union County, severely injuring a northeast Ohio teacher, are seeking to move their cases to juvenile court.  

Attorneys for Dylan Lahr, Keefer McGee and Tyler Porter filed motions late last month in Union County Court seeking the move. 

The 18-year-old defendants were 17 on July 10 when the large rock smashed through the windshield of a car on Interstate 80, striking 52-year-old Sharon Budd in the face. 

The three, along with 19-year-old Brett Lahr, are charged with aggravated assault, conspiracy, propulsion of a missile into a vehicle and other counts. 

Dylan Lahr's attorney also wants the case moved to another county, citing pretrial publicity.
