His wife, Guadalupe, pregnant with the couple's second child, weeped as she bravely went in front of the cameras in a plea for help in identifying who may have done this, as did Lopez's sister and father.

The boulder, described as 30 to 35 pounds and a little larger than a volleyball, was dropped onto the 134 Freeway from an overpass Tuesday night, according to California Highway Patrol, CBS Los Angeles reported.

Twenty-three-year-old Christopher Lopez, who was in the passenger seat of the Toyota driven by his wife, was killed. The couple's 4-year-old daughter and Gutierrez's mother also were in the auto, CBS Los Angeles reported. "My daughter didn't deserve this", she said.

"This was an intentional act", California Highway Patrol Lt.

Guadalupe Gutierrez was driving westbound on the Ventura (134) Freeway in the carpool lane, traveling about 70 miles per hour, when the boulder came down on the couple's 2017 Toyota Corolla about 9 p.m. Tuesday at Orange Grove Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.
