SHELBY TOWNSHIP — A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle, resulting in a serious injury, at around 7:30 p.m. April 14 in the Target parking lot located near 26 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue.

The Shelby Township Police Department’s preliminary investigation shows that a vehicle was traveling westbound through the parking lot when it struck the pedestrian, who was walking southbound through the lot.

The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and was said to be cooperating with investigators.

Detective Jordan Haughee, from the Shelby Township Police Department, is taking the lead on the investigation.

“I am requesting if there was anyone that witnessed this crash to please contact me,” Haughee said.

Haughee can be reached at (586) 731-2121, ext. 333.

Speaking late last week, Haughee said that the pedestrian was “still in critical condition at the hospital.”

No other information was being released at that time.
