Man struck, killed by semi on U.S. 23 after exiting vehicle

On Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at approximately 11:26 a.m., deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a semi-tractor and trailer versus vehicle personal injury crash on southbound U.S. 23 south of Clyde Road in Hartland Township.

According to a release from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, deputies determined that a 41-year-old Milford resident was struck in the roadway on southbound US 23 near Crouse Road. The investigation revealed that the pedestrian exited his vehicle and was struck by a 2005 Kenworth semi-tractor and trailer in the southbound lane of travel. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene by Livingston County EMS.

The driver of the Kenworth semi-tractor was uninjured. Southbound U.S. 23 was closed for approximately four hours during the investigation.

Speed and alcohol use do not appear to be a factor in this crash. The incident remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and the car accident injury lawyer is helping the people affected during this crash with the legal process.

Deputies were assisted on the scene by Hartland Fire Department, Michigan State Police, and Livingston County Ambulance.
