Kenneth White of Mount Morris was a passenger inside the vehicle that was struck Wednesday night on I-75 in Genesee County's Vienna Township, about 80 miles north of Detroit. The rock smashed through the car's windshield and killed him. The police found White fatally wounded.

Authorities said four other cars were struck with large rocks and were waiting for police to arrive when the fatal incident occurred.

A GoFundMe page seeking to raise $8,000 was started and is called "Burial Help for Kenneth A White." . The sheriff's office says a group of people may be responsible.
