Woman struck on I-96 on April 7 released from hospital

The woman struck by a car as she ran along the shoulder of eastbound I-96 near Dorr Road on April 7, 2020, has been released from the University of Michigan Medical Center, according to Livingston County Sheriff Michael Murphy.

At approximately 6 a.m. Tuesday, April 7, 2020, deputies from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to check on the welfare of a pedestrian running on the shoulder of eastbound I-96 near Dorr Road in Genoa Township. Deputies located Jacqueline Marrocco, 27, of Lansing, lying on the shoulder of eastbound I-96 east of Dorr Road. Marrocco had been struck by a vehicle that was stopped at the scene.

The preliminary investigation revealed Marrocco was traveling eastbound on I-96 when her vehicle became disabled. Marrocco left her vehicle and was presumably going for assistance when she was struck by a 2016 Ford Flex being driven by a 59-year-old Howell resident. It appears Marrocco was near or in the travel lane of I-96 when the crash occurred. She had been transported to U-M Hospital with what was believed to be life-threatening injuries.
