Shirtless man running across I-96 hit and killed

Michigan State Police said a man was killed early Sunday morning as he ran onto I-96 when he was hit by a passing car.

MSP said the man was killed around 3:30 Sunday morning on I-96 at Inkster Road.

Police said they were called to a report of a shirtless man running across the freeway and that the motive for why he was running was unclear. Investigators originally said that he was running from a larceny, but updated information on the case Wednesday night.

Minutes after that call, other calls came into to police that the man had been hit and killed.

The driver that hit the man stayed at the scene and cooperated.

MSP has identified the man who died as a 33-year-old from Detroit. His name was not released.
