One Killed in Suspected Hope Township, Michigan Alcohol Related Accident

Officials from the Michigan State Highway Patrol have not yet identified the individual killed in a road accident in Hope Township, MI on Sunday, June 9th, 2013. Authorities currently have reason to believe that one as-of-yet unidentified individual that was killed when the motorcycle they operated was struck by a pickup truck that police estimate was backing out of a driveway on Highway 43. The driver consequently fled the scene.
