WIXOM (WWJ) – Authorities in Oakland County have released the name of a man killed in a construction accident on Monday.
Wixom police said 58-year-old Steven Sanborn of Davison, Michigan, toppled from the top of a four-story building shortly after 3 p.m. at a job site on Alpha Drive near I-96 and Wixom Road.

The fall appears to have been accidental.
