Source Genesee County Sheriff's Office

A United States father-of-four was killed this week when a large rock, thrown off an overpass by a group of teens, smashed through his windshield and struck him in the head.

It happened around 8:30 Wednesday night on I-75 south at Dodge Road in Vienna Township.

An very bad story out of MI, where a 32-year-old construction worker and father was returning from a work site Wednesday night when the vehicle, which a co-worker was driving, was hit by a large rock.

Investigators say four other vehicles were struck with large rocks or concrete chunks.

A representative with Genesee County Sheriff's office, which is handling the investigation, told BuzzFeed News that officials were not available to comment on the case over the weekend. They were reportedly throwing rocks as a prank. Leyton said he had not authorized charges in connection to the death. The 32-year-old Genesee County resident was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police said they believe that the rocks may have been taken from another location and thrown off the overpass.

"You're playing Russian Roulette with people's lives", he said. They are investigating White's death as a potential homicide. "For some senseless act, for it to be just a rock, just to take him so soon". The youngest was 5 years old.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for White's family to help with burial has already raised more than $15,000.

There is also a $2,500 reward and tipsters can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-5244.
