A 32-year-old man died after a rock came crashing through a car windshield in Michigan after a group of teenagers allegedly threw it off an overpass Wednesday.

Kenneth Andrew White of Mount Morris, Michigan, was on his way home from a construction job when the rock hit him. He was sitting in the passenger seat of a car that was traveling on Interstate-75.

According to CBS Detroit, the large rock struck the father-of-four in the head and he was immediately knocked unconscious. He was then rushed to the Hurley Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.

Fox 2 reported that several teenagers are in custody and a part of I-75 was shut on Friday for a brief period while investigations by Genesee County Sheriff’s office continued. It is not yet clear how many teens were in custody and what their ages were. ABC News affiliate WXYZ- TV reported the teens were from the same area and threw the rock as a prank.

White’s family told the channel they could not believe this happened. His fiancée Aimee Cagle told Click on Detroit that she had to tell their 5-year-old son that his father was not coming home. "He was a good man and a good father," Cagle said. "For some senseless act, for it to be just a rock, just to take him so soon."

"We have a family here," Genesee County Undersheriff Chris Swanson said. "This guy's got a fiance. He's got a child. 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. We want to find out who's responsible for this."

"He took away a child's father, and the love of my life," Cagle added. "His stupid act took away a life." A GoFundMe page was created to raise money for White’s burial expenses.

White’s sister, Alicia Waskoski, told the Detroit News that her brother "loved being a working man." "He liked being outside and throwing a football around, video games and sports," she continued.

Several members of his family spoke of White to ABC News affiliate WJRT. According to the report, he moved back to Michigan from South Carolina about two years ago with Cagle and their son. His aunt, Antoinette Safran said she told White she was proud of him when he told her about his new construction job and recalled seeing him at work.

Another aunt, Nancy Vizcarra said he was kind and protective of his younger brother and the family as a whole.

His cousin, Jessica Hoover, said she was pleased that people were taken into custody over the death. "I'm pleased that someone is going to be held accountable for what they did. I don't think it's ever going to bring us closure,” she said.

The Detroit News reported that the sheriff’s office was investigating the incident as a "potential homicide." Several photos taken at the scene showed a gaping hole on the passenger side of the windshield, with the glass smashed. According to reports, four other vehicles were reported hit by large rocks on the highway.
