Seattle police say a woman was knocked unconscious early Tuesday when she was hit with an egg thrown from a passing pickup.

The woman and several friends were standing outside a bar near Northwest 85th Street and 15th Avenue Northwest when someone in the truck hurled several eggs at the group, according to police. One of the eggs struck the woman behind her ear, knocking her unconscious.

Her friends caught her as she fell to the ground, and drove her to a hospital, police said.

Witnesses, including a bar employee who was also struck by an egg, described the truck as a small, black or green pickup with a canopy and dark-tinted windows.
