Family remembers 48-year-old killed in car accident on Detroit's west side

Family remembered the 48-year-old killed in a car accident on Detroit's west side.

- Family members of 48-year-old Anthony Bailes return to the location where he was struck by a car and killed Sunday morning.

"Even though he was in that wheelchair, and he battled with lupus all the time, and he had no legs, he was always upbeat through everything," said Jerome Jackson, Anthony's brother.

Bailes was hit after a driver ran a stop sign at Greenfield and Chalfont. She hit a car driven by a 51-year-old father, and that car veered into Bailes. The father was also killed in the accident. His 5-year-old son also in the car was injured but is in stable condition.

"My heart is heavy," said another of Anthony's brothers, Richard Bailes.

The woman police believe was responsible for this accident initially ran from the scene, but was later identified at the hospital and is in temporary serious condition.
