Woman hit, killed by semi in Bay City

Posted: Updated:

Authorities are investigating after a woman was hit and killed by a semi while walking in Bay City.

It happened Wednesday night at the intersection of Broadway Street and Cass Avenue.

The Bay City Department of Public Safety said the 85-year-old Bay City woman was walking eastbound on Cass Avenue when she was hit by a semi-tractor trailer driven by a Bay County resident.

A family member said the victim is Patricia Menne. She is a resident of Bay City's south end.

"She was a kind lady and I always seen her walking up and down the street," said Scott Rybkowski, Bay City resident.

Rybkowski knew Menne and her daughter. He hopes Menne's family is eventually able to find peace.

"Stuff like that shouldn't happen and I'm sorry for her family and I hope they get through the hardship," Rybkowski said.

The driver, who is in his mid 50s, is cooperating, and the investigation is ongoing.

Investigators said they do not believe that the driver was drinking.
