A pedestrian was killed Monday evening on I-275 in Huron Township, according to Michigan State Police.

Police say at 10:20 p.m. troopers were called to the area of I-275 and Sibley Road due to a pedestrian on the freeway.

The female driver of this vehicle advised troopers that she thought she hit someone. Near the crash debris, the body of a male subject was located and lifesaving efforts were attempted until EMS arrived.
