Authorities say a 37-year-old man is dead after being hit by a pickup truck while stopped along the side of a mid-Michigan roadway to check on another motorist.
The Isabella County sheriff's department says Jaremy T. Stiles of Big Rapids pulled over Tuesday night in Broomfield Township after seeing a vehicle stopped with its hazard lights blinking.
The sheriff's department says Stiles checked to see whether anyone needed help, and was told that the driver had stopped because of a dead deer in the road. While returning to his vehicle, Stiles was struck by a pickup that tried to avoid the deer.
The sheriff's department says Stiles was pronounced dead at the scene. Michigan State Police also responded along with rescue crews.
