NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Relatives of a Tennessee man who was killed when a chunk of concrete went through his windshield are offering a reward for more information.

Nashville police said 54-year-old Joe C. Shelton Jr. of Pleasant View was killed Nov. 20 while he was driving on Interstate 24 near downtown Nashville. He was traveling to his job at a Nissan plant in Smyrna.

Police said the family is offering $5,000 for information leading to arrest and conviction in adult court of the person responsible for Shelton's death, if it was a criminal act. Crime Stoppers is also offering up to $1,000.

Tennessee Transportation Department bridge inspectors determined the concrete was not part of the nearby Shelby Avenue Bridge. Detectives are having the 23-pound chunk of concrete analyzed to try to find out where it came from.
