PRUNEDALE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are now offering $15,000 for information leading to whoever launched projectiles at more than 60 vehicles along a busy highway in Northern California.

The California Highway Patrol increased the reward from $8,500 after a string of attacks in the last week along a stretch of Highway 101 in Monterey County.

The CHP says at least 63 cases of projectiles being fired at vehicles have been reported since February. It says no one has been seriously injured.

Officials say the projectiles are the size of marbles and seem to be aimed at the driver's seat.
