Crime Stoppers offering reward in death of man on I-75

Source Genesee County Sheriff's Office

The Genesee County sheriff says a rock hit a southbound vehicle's windshield near the Dodge Road overpass on I-75.

A GoFundMe page seeking to raise $8,000 was started and is called "Burial Help for Kenneth A White." .

The rock smashed through the windshield and hit the man, and he was taken to Hurley Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. "For some senseless act, for it to be just a rock, just to take him so soon".

The Genesee County Sheriff's Office is reportedly investigating the case a potential homicide.

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


Relaying the agony of White's death, Donald White, Kenneth White's uncle told of speaking to the co-worker who'd been driving, 'Put the doctor on the phone and said we did everything... we did everything we could for him and he died'. ABC News affiliate WXYZ- TV reported the teens were from the same area and threw the rock as a prank.

Four other vehicles were reportedly hit by large rocks on the highway, according to reports. It's no laughing matter. The youngest was 5 years old. A GoFundMe to raise money for funeral expenses has collected almost $8,000 so far.

As of Friday evening, EST, $13.7K of a $19,000 goal had been donated.

There's a reward of up to $2500 being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Several Michigan teens are accused of killing a construction worker on his way home from work after they tossed a huge rock from an interstate overpass that crashed through the windshield of the vehicle the father of four was traveling in.
