Police: Man Suspected of Causing Damage to Vehicles on Illinois Highway

Illinois State Police have arrested a man that they say was responsible for some scary incidents involving moving vehicles on an interstate highway.

According to police, 53-year-old Kevin Casey of Janesville, WI was arrested and charged with aggravated battery to a child, aggravated battery on a public way, and criminal damage to property after allegedly causing damage to numerous vehicles travelling on Interstate 74.

In one of the incidents, a 3-year-old boy was cut by flying shards of glass after the passenger side window of his family’s minivan shattered while driving through Champaign on the interstate highway, according to the Champaign News-Gazette.

Police also believe that Casey is responsible for damaging vehicles in states to the east of Illinois along the highway.

Police did not offer details on how Casey allegedly caused the damage, but will hold a press conference on Monday morning to address the case.
