CLINTON TWP. (WWJ) – Investigators say a 16-year-old boy will not face charges for hitting a bicyclist who died soon after the accident in Clinton Township.

Clinton Township Police Lieutenant Raymund Macksoud said it was dark and misty when the teen hit the 39-year-old bicyclist at 19 Mile and Garfield late Tuesday night.

“It was a dark bicycle, the person was dressed in dark clothing, in an area that is not well lit,” Macksoud said. “There were no exterior lights there,¬†very little reflective material, so it was very difficult for any driver to have seen.”

The Lieutenant said their preliminary investigation shows driver experience does not appear to be a factor.

The names of the victim and the driver are not being released. Police say alcohol was not a factor for the driver and are waiting for reports to come back on the bicyclist.
