A man driving to work on I-275 says his passenger window was smashed by someone who threw a rock at his car.

Vincent Roman was about three miles from the Plymouth/Ann Arbor exit, when he heard what sounded like an explosion as the window was shattered by something the size of a softball.

"Just a big pop, like a Big Bang and it startled me so I kinda held on and just kept going," he says.

Roman says it appeared to him as if it was a rock thrown from the ditch.

"I just figured it was something that hit mine and hit my window, but there’s no dents or anything else it just hit exactly at the bottom of my window," he says.

We contacted Michigan State Police. Spokesperson Lt. Mike Shaw says troopers didn't find anything and believe the window was shattered by road debris.

However, Romans says, "It had to be a straight shot to my window. And like I said I did see something else coming through the air. So it wasn’t like coming off of a truck or somewhere else."

He wants drivers in the area to keep their eyes out.

He also says it will cost him about $200 to replace the window.
