Pedestrian Killed On Front Street

By Patrick Sullivan | March 21, 2020

A 55-year-old Kingsley man apparently struck a pedestrian without knowing and drove two blocks down Front Street before being waved at to pull over by another driver.

According to the Traverse City Police Department, 54-year-old Carol Denise Holtrey of Traverse City was struck and killed Friday just before 10am. The driver exited the Taco Bell on East Front Street and headed east before he was alerted by another driver to pull into the parking lot at the Burger King two blocks away, Chief Jeffrey O’Brien says.

Investigators determined that the driver was not aware of the impact with the pedestrian, who ended up pinned underneath the vehicle.
