Two people struck by a Ford Explorer in Detroit have died.

Detroit police said the victims, a man and a woman, were hit by an Explorer while on a sidewalk Saturday night.

Just moments earlier, the vehicle had struck another car. The driver fled but was arrested when he went to police and claimed the Explorer had been carjacked.
