Man wanted for hit and run killed by car after fleeing in Huron Twp

- A man wanted for a hit and run crash was killed after being struck by a car in yet another accident in Huron Township.
 
Mark Barley was walking along King Road dressed in black when he was hit and killed by a passing car. But that driver stopped.

The strange story started at 3:30 p.m. in Huron Township, where Barley caused an accident in the area of Inkster and West roads and fled. About three hours later and Barley was found hit in the middle of the street.

"It was a hectic day for us but in the end it all tied together," said Chief Everette Robbins, Huron Township police. 

The officers located the suspect's hit and run vehicle in the 27000 block of Bordeaux Street. A passenger in Barley's vehicle was injured and transported to a local hospital. 

After fleeing, Barley walked to the Asian Express. He left went down Middle Belt Road and took a right at King and that's when he was hit.

"It was really sad for the person that hit him," said Robbins. "But he cooperated fully," 

And that driver will not be charged with any crime.  

"The message is (it could have been a) traffic ticket, maybe a night in jail turned into a man losing his life," the chief said.
