A pedestrian dies on U.S. 24 in Defiance. Officials tell reporters William Wales stopped his vehicle on the right shoulder with the flashers and ignition on. He got out of his vehicle, crossing the westbound lanes of 24…that’s when he was struck and killed by an SUV heading westbound. Wales appeared to have been removing a small animal carcass from the center of the roadway. The driver of the SUV, William Hemberg of Clinton Township was not injured in the crash. An investigation is underway.
