A driver was fatally struck in Southfield early Wednesday after he crashed into a motorist, Michigan State Police said.

Southfield police called Metro North troopers to the scene on Northwestern Highway near Telegraph Road at about 7 a.m. They learned the driver of a passenger car lost control and struck a pickup truck.

That man "exited his vehicle and went to make contact with the other driver and was hit by another car," police said in a statement. 

The driver, identified as a 48-year-old Detroit resident, was pronounced dead on the scene.

The motorist in the car that hit him stopped and waited for authorities, MSP said.

Other details were not released Wednesday.
