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

His cousin, Jessica Hoover, said she was pleased that people were taken into custody over the death.

"He's on his way back from a hard day's work and out of the blue comes a rock and he loses his life", says the Genesee County undersferiff.

Photos of the scene show a gaping hole in the windshield of a white van with a ladder fastened on top.

Four other vehicles had reported hitting other rocks in the road and had pulled onto the shoulder waiting for police when the fatal accident occured.

Law enforcement sources said the alleged rock-throwers, who were arrested Friday, threw the rock as a prank, WXYZ-TV reported. "Because they obviously ain't got one that they can do something this malicious". The youngest was 5 years old.
