Police in Toledo filed murder charges against the boys, three of whom are 14, the other 13, after Marquise Byrd died from his injuries on Friday, officials said.

Around 10 p.m. on December 19, authorities say the four teenagers were lobbing objects, including a construction sandbag, over the Indiana Avenue bridge in Toledo, Ohio, onto Interstate 75 below.

The bag crashed through the windshield of a vehicle where 22-year-old Marquise Byrd was sitting in the passenger seat. The local news outlet reports the autopsy found Byrd suffered from blunt-force trauma to the head and neck.

Authorities in Toledo, Ohio, have charged four boys with murder after a sandbag they allegedly dropped from an interstate overpass killed a passenger in a vehicle.

The teens were initially charged with felonious assault, and murder charges were later added after Byrd succumbed to his injuries. Judges have to take into account whether the juveniles can rehabilitate by 21 years old, if they used firearms and if they are mature enough for the adult system.

"Detectives determined the falling sandbag was not an accident, but a deliberate act", police said in a statement.

CBS News reported Byrd's friend was driving the vehicle when the sandbag hit the vehicle and she pulled over to the side of the road to call 911.

The emergency dispatcher asked the frantic driver if she knew what had hit Byrd.
