Four teens are now facing murder charges after a Warren, Michigan man was hit by a sandbag thrown off of an overpass on I-75 in Toledo, Ohio.

The teens, aged 13-14, are now each charged with murder, felony vehicular vandalism and misdemeanor vehicular vandalism.

Sean Carter, 14; William Parker, 14; Pedro Salinas, 14 and Demetrius Wimberly, 14, originally faced felonious assault charges.

Marquise Byrd, 22, died in a Toledo-area hospital following a critical injury sustained after he was struck by the sandbag.

Byrd was in the front passenger's seat in a vehicle traveling southbound on Interstate 75 through Toledo when a construction sandbag crashed through the windshield, striking him.
