Brick Thrown at Car Smashes Windshield, Kills Passenger: Police

A 41-year-old Connecticut man was killed by a brick thrown at the car he was riding in over the weekend, authorities say.

A brick smashed the windshield and Morales' side window, hitting him in the head and killing him, authorities said.

Morales was pronounced dead at a hospital. It's not clear why the group was throwing rocks at his vehicle.
