The incident happened at about 12:30 a.m. Monday on Grand River near Halsted, according to authorities.

The victim was walking in the roadway with another man, a 25-year-old from Detroit, when he was struck by a vehicle. A preliminary investigation revealed they were walking west in the eastbound lanes of Grand River and the vehicle was traveling east on the road.
