Rochester Hills, MI (November 24, 2021) - A woman driving an SUV hit and killed an elderly man as he crossed a street in Rochester Hills inside a crosswalk on Sunday, November 21st.

The accident took place at about 5:55 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of Drexelgate Parkway, in the area of Livernois Road when a 77-year-old woman from Rochester Hills driving a 2018 Buick Encore on Livernois Road attempted to make a lefthand turn onto Drexelgate Parkway.

As she was turning, the woman struck a 73-year-old man, also from Rochester Hills, who was inside of a marked crosswalk. 

Paramedics transported the victim to Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital where he passed away due to the severity of his injuries.

The woman was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash. Drugs and alcohol are not believed to have been factors.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.

Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Michigan

Rochester Hills, MI - Elderly Man Dies After Being Hit by SUV While Crossing Drexelgate Pky at Livernois Rd

Walking is a basic method of transportation that is available to everyone. It is both economical and good for the environment. Walking is a good way to get some exercise, make friends in your neighborhood, and is the only way many people have to get from one place to another or access public transportation. With so many undeniable benefits, it is easy to forget that being a pedestrian can actually be very dangerous.

Over 70,000 pedestrians are injured or killed in traffic accidents nationwide every year. In Michigan, roughly 2,500 pedestrians were involved in car accidents in 2019 and, of those, 149 of them ultimately died. 

In addition to untimely deaths, pedestrian accidents are also more likely to result in serious injuries due to the vulnerable nature of pedestrians. They have no helmets or seatbelts to protect them. They are not encased in tempered glass and metal, and they do not have the security of an airbag. 

If you or a family member have been injured or killed in a pedestrian accident in Michigan, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your damages.
