Rock dropped from overpass kills passenger in vehicle; teens charged

Five teen boys will be charged as adults in connection to the October 18 rock-throwing death of a 32-year-old Mt. Morris man. Leyton said the teens acted knowing that death would be the likely result of their actions. Once there, they threw more than a dozen large rocks onto passing vehicles on southbound I-75. "These people should have known better".

The suspects are expected to be arraigned Tuesday, Oct. 24 in Genesee District Court.

White, 32, from Mount Morris, was riding home from work around 8:30 p.m. when the van was hit with a 6-pound rock.

The second-degree murder charge carries up to life in prison.

The rocks, one weighing 20 pounds, were gathered from a dead-end street in Vienna Township and put in the flatbed of a pickup truck, Pickell said.


Charges of second-degree murder and malicious destruction of property have been authorized against one 17-year-old and four 15-year-olds following a days-long investigation by the Genesee County Sheriff's Office that included multiple search warrants and interviews over the weekend. The driver saw a large rock coming at the van and said the rock entered the passenger side through the windshield, Pickell said. White was hit in the chest and head, causing major trauma.

He was killed after 2 hours journey from his construction job, the man was struck and killed by a rock which was allegedly thrown by some teenagers.

"To know they're putting lives in danger by just throwing rocks (from the overpass)".

White's fiancee named Aimee Cagle told the Click on Detroit, she had to inform her 5-year-old son about his dad, who was not returning home.
