Macomb County Pedestrian Struck By Car While Crossing Intersection is Killed

Comments (0)

A Macomb County car accident has resulted in the death of a pedestrian.  James Gilleylen, 52, was killed at about 6:30 a.m. on February 3, 2009 when a white car, possibly a Chrysler Neon, hit him at the intersection of Cass Avenue and Main Street.  A second vehicle, a grey or silver SUV, then hit him again before continuing on to an ATM.  Police believe that the drivers would have been aware that they hit something, even if they had not realized they hit a person.

I am very sorry when accidents like this occur.  I want to extend my sympathies to the family and friends of James Gilleylen.

When someone is killed in a hit and run car accident, the family of the accident victim should submit a claim for Michigan No Fault insurance survivor loss benefits.  A No Fault survivor loss claim can help the family deal with the economic costs of an unexpected death.  Survivor loss benefits include a payment for a portion of the funeral costs and payments for loss of financial support and loss of household services.  In addition, the family may be able to sue either the hit and run driver, or possibly their own insurance company for added benefits.
