St. Clair County man killed while helping friend who ran out of gas
Alcohol not factor in crash, police say
RILEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. – The St. Clair County Sheriff's Office has launched an investigation into a multiple-vehicle crash that happened on eastbound I-69 at Eagling Road.
Police said a 33-year-old woman from Lapeer had run out of gas and was parked on the shoulder of the expressway.
She called her friend, a 37-year-old man from Riley Township, who showed up to help and parked right behind her vehicle.
As he started to put gas in her vehicle, a 45-year-old man from Wales Township operating his 2016 Jeep Compass crossed the white fog line and struck and killed the man.
Police do not believe alcohol is a factor in the crash.
