Default Four Teens Charged With Murder After Tossing Sandbag Off Overpass

Four Ohio teenagers have been charged with murder for allegedly throwing a sandbag off an overpass that struck and killed a 22-year-old man.

Authorities say a construction sandbag was thrown over the Indiana Avenue bridge onto Interstate 75 in Toledo on Dec. 19, around 10 p.m. The bag landed on a car, crashed through the windshield and critically injured the front passenger, Marquise Byrd, of Warren, Michigan.

The driver, who was heading south on I-75, was not injured.

“God, God... he is laid out at my feet,” the driver said in a frantic 911 call. “I think this windshield might have smacked his head.”

You can listen to the recording here.

Byrd, who sustained a serious head injury, was treated at the scene and transported to a local hospital.

“Detectives determined the falling sandbag was not an accident, but a deliberate act,” Toledo police said.

Four boys, three of them 14 years old and one 13, were taken into custody not far from the overpass. On Dec. 20, they were charged with felonious assault in juvenile court.

“This is a case where the state has very strong evidence ― there were statements made by all of the juveniles involved in this case,” Lucas County Deputy Prosecutor Lori Olender told the Toledo Blade.

Byrd died on Friday, prompting the prosecutor’s office to amend the criminal complaint. The teens now face charges of murder, felony vehicular vandalism and misdemeanor vehicular vandalism.

HuffPost is not identifying the defendants because they have been charged in juvenile court. They are being held without bail at a Toledo juvenile detention center.

According to The Plain Dealer, other drivers said their vehicles were struck by objects thrown from the overpass on Dec. 20, but no other injuries were reported.

Byrd, the father of a 1-year-old boy, was reportedly engaged to be married.

“My auntie has to bury her son,” Shaveontae King, Byrd’s cousin, told the Blade. “He’s gone [and] he’s never coming back.”

King said she’d like to see the teens charged as adults ― something the district attorney’s office has reportedly indicated it does not plan to do.



Second time a story like this has happened in the last few months. On top of the obvious questions as to where are the parents, I also wonder how stupid today's kids are that they don't realize the consequences of their actions ahead of time. Like, what did they expect would happen? It's simple physics. A car is traveling at a high rate of speed, and you decide to throw a 25-30 pound object at it. Unless these are four psychopaths who happen to all befriend each other and decided to go out one day and commit murder.

little pat, you have alot to learn. kids are stupid, they do not think about the possible outcomes and consequences of their actions, or atleast they cant grasp it.

from tossing sandbags on the overpass to tossing salads in prison.
