Detroit, MI (November 19, 2021) - A 51-year-old Roseville man lost his life after he was struck by two vehicles on a highway in Detroit in the early morning hours of November 16. Michigan State Police stated that the victim was a passenger in a vehicle that pulled over so he could go to the bathroom. 

The man was reportedly struck by two vehicles on M-39 near McNichols Road at approximately 3:15 a.m. What led up to the collision remains under police investigation at this time. 

Detroit EMS were dispatched shortly after the fatal incident occurred. The victim was declared deceased on-site. His name has not currently been released. 

Both drivers involved remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities. Police in Detroit continue to investigate the details of the wreck. 

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim.

Michigan Pedestrian Crashes

Pedestrian accidents are a growing problem in Michigan and across the United States. The pedestrian accident rate in the Wolverine State rose approximately 19% from 2019 to 2020. Throughout the United States, the pedestrian crash rate rose more than 21% in 2020, the largest yearly increase ever recorded. 

By nature, injuries suffered in pedestrian accidents are usually more severe than other types of injuries, especially when compared to those suffered in crashes that occur between two vehicles. This is due to the fact that those traveling by foot or bicycle lack the protection provided by a vehicle. For this reason, they’re at a much higher risk for serious, debilitating, or even deadly injuries.

Things like pain and suffering lost wages, and medical bills may be able to be financially compensated for if you decide to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim with the help of a skilled attorney.
