Canton, MI (March 18, 2022) – A teenager lost their life on Friday night, March 11 after being struck by a semi-truck on a roadway in Canton. The teen was attempting to cross I-275 after being involved in a crash, according to reports. 

According to information provided by officials, the wreck happened at around 11:20 p.m. on I-275 near Ford Road. It was a single-car accident with a vehicle occupied by three people. 

After the wreck, all occupants exited the vehicle and attempted to cross the southbound lanes of the interstate. One of the occupants, identified as an 18-year-old boy from Detroit, was struck by a southbound semi-truck. 

The teenager was fatally injured in the collision, officials said. The two other occupants were found by authorities at the scene. It remains unclear whether they were hurt. 

Police in Canton continue to investigate the details of the wreck. 

Our thoughts are with those involved. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

Michigan Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are almost twice as likely to die during a car crash than the occupant of a vehicle, and if they do manage to survive being struck by a car, they usually have a very long period of recovery to endure. As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 129,000 people in the United States required emergency room visits in one recent year for treatment of injuries they sustained during pedestrian-involved accidents. Additionally, another 5,376 pedestrians died as a result of their injuries. 

Accidents involving pedestrians produce more fatalities and more injured victims than any other kind of car accident. Since pedestrians are completely vulnerable, they typically sustain injuries that are more critical than any vehicle occupant. This is why it is important to solicit reputable legal counsel if you for a family member suffered an injury or lost their life to the carelessness of a driver. 

If you have recently been injured in a Michigan pedestrian accident, then a Michigan pedestrian accident attorney will know the most effective methods for helping you obtain financial compensation for damages such as medical expenses, loss of income, and many other damages brought on by your accident and injuries.
