Oregon boy severely hurt in ‘mailbox baseball’ game

The Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Grants Pass police say a 16-year-old boy suffered severe head injuries playing “mailbox baseball,” which usually consists of smashing mailboxes from a moving vehicle.

But, police said Sunday, when a motor-home passenger picked an additional target and whacked a telephone pole, his metal bat flew backward and hit the boy looking out from a rear window.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports the teenager was flown to a hospital in Portland.

Police say the 21-year-old driver, Breanna Allene White, and a passenger, 21-year-old Vega Shaw Russell, were booked on assault charges.

Police accused 18-year-old passenger Dennis Allen Mosier of tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution. Another 16-year-old boy was put in juvenile custody, accused of hindering prosecution and violating parole.
