The woman and her husband, who was a passenger in the vehicle, were showered in glass but escaped injury. The woman managed to safely stop the car in a nearby lay-by.
The rock was thrown from a bridge near Havant.
A school's garden has been transformed to try and help boost the declining bee population.
Pupils from St James Primary School in Emsworth built their own garden with flowers to attract bees and improve school grounds.
Staff from Southern Electric joined the pupils as part of the company's Community at Heart scheme that encourages all their employees to spend a work day supporting community projects.
The day also involved teaching pupils about sustainability and the importance of bees to our environment.
Bruce Waelend, Head Teacher at St. James Primary School said: “It’s great when the children can be involved in something that not only improves their school environment but also allows them to learn something about nature and engage in something practical.
The kids have had a great day as well as the teachers; we really appreciate the time offered by the Southern Electric staff.”
One lane is closed due to accident on A27 Eastbound between A259 Havant Road (Emsworth Junction) and A286 Stockbridge Road (Stockbridge Roundabout).

A male fox cub was rescued after becoming stuck between two brick-built garages in Emsworth. Hampshire Fire & Rescue's animal rescue team were called out after the cub became stuck in the cavity 12 inches below the concrete base and three metres in.
Animal rescuer Buster Brown, then used a drill, hammer and chisel to remove the bricks from inside the garage wall to reach it. He said:
"This process took nearly two hours as I had to remove the bricks carefully to ensure I didn't injure the animal."
The fox was later released unharmed.
