Thirty-two-year-old Kenneth White of Mount Morris was a passenger in a vehicle that was hit Wednesday night on I-75 in Vienna Township, about 80 miles (130 kilometers) north of Detroit.

Kenneth White, 32, was travelling south on the I-75 in Vienna Township on Wednesday, Oct. 18, when the rock smashed through his windshield.

The station reported rocks were also tossed at four other vehicles, causing damage.

Californians should be prepared to be self-sufficient for 72 hours following an quake or other major disaster, officials say. Survival kits - stocked with water, food and a radio, among other items - can be crucial after a major temblor.

The Genesse County Sheriff's Office determined the rock striking White after a group of teenagers had thrown the heavy object from an overpass against oncoming traffic. 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. The Sheriff's office believes the rocks found at the scene may have been taken from elsewhere and thrown from the Dodge Road overpass. It is not yet clear how many teens were in custody and what their ages were. According to his sister, Alicia Waskoski said, "great friend, a great family member and a really great father".

Law enforcement sources said the alleged rock-throwers, who were arrested Friday, threw the rock as a prank, WXYZ-TV reported.

Police are now investigating White's death as a potential homicide and have several teens in custody, believed to be connected to the incident. "For some senseless act, for it to be just a rock, just to take him so soon". Leyton said he had not authorized charges in connection to the death.
