Police believe the man from the westbound lanes of the freeway, hopped the median wall, and was in the path of oncoming traffic when he was hit by a 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

After medics transported the man to St. John Hospital in Detroit, he died from his injuries. Police are attempting to reach the man’s next-of-kin, according to a state police statement issued Tuesday afternoon.

The driver of the Jeep was not hurt.
