The road worker struck by a vehicle Tuesday afternoon has died from injuries sustained in the crash.
Detectives from the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office were notified Thursday that 44-year-old Julian Perez of Indianapolis had died at McLaren Macomb Hospital late this morning.
St. Clair County Sheriff Deputies had been called to the scene of a car-pedestrian injury crash on M-25 north of Carrigan Road shortly after noon on Tuesday. When they arrived, they found Perez unresponsive.
He was transported by Tri-Hospital EMS to McLaren Port Huron Hospital and was later transported to McLaren Macomb.
The incident occurred when a 28-year-old woman from Marlette was driving her vehicle northbound on M-25. As she drove through the construction zone, she struck the road worker. Also in the vehicle were her husband and two young children. None of them suffered any injuries.
The Sheriff’s Office Accident Investigation Division is conducting an ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash.
No charges have been brought against the driver of the vehicle at this time.
