Emergency personnel responded to a vehicle-pedestrian accident at 10:15pm Saturday near Ruby Tuesday on US-31. A westbound vehicle on the highway struck a 71-year-old man from India who was attempting to walk across the road. The driver of the vehicle pulled into a business after hitting the man, then fled the scene on foot. The accident victim was taken to Munson Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 2:45am Sunday.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking that anyone who was near Ruby Tuesday or Smoke & Porter at the time of the crash and who may have confronted the driver to contact Central Dispatch at 231-922-4550. The crash remains under investigation.
