Woman Hit By Car On Detroit's Eastside

A woman is in temporary serious condition after she was hit by a car on Detroit’s eastside Thursday morning.

Detroit police say the 50-year old victim was wearing dark clothing and crossing Conner Avenue near Warren Road when the accident happened around 6:30 a.m.

The driver, identified as a 45-year old from Grosse Pointe, stopped at the scene and was questioned by police.

The accident happened in front of Capuchin Soup Kitchen where Marilyn Rayez works, “It was pitch black here, we have no lights out here, the street lights have been out for months and the cars fly through here, it’s like a race track in the morning.”

The woman was taken to a local hospital for treatment. She was talking to emergency crews after the crash.

WWJ’s Vickie Thomas reports the city is investigating why the street lights have been out since the wind storm in September.

This week there have been two deadly pedestrian accidents in the Detroit metro area. 

A man was killed Monday along Orchard Lake in West Bloomfield Township.

Tuesday night, a man was killed when he was hit while walking along Grange Hall Road in Holly.
