Three people report being shot by darts fired from a passing SUV this month in Eugene, police said.
All three got hit in the lower extremities by the projectiles, police said. Tests found no substances on the darts themselves.

A driver hit the gas instead of the brake Wednesday afternoon, crashing into the exterior wall of a south Eugene restaurant in the Southtowne Shoppes.

These side effects can be pretty daunting, but they're not from some scary carcinogen or some unknown substance.
They can be caused by something you see every day: your office chair.
