KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) — A pedestrian was hit and killed by two cars in Kentwood Tuesday evening, police say.
It happened around 8:38 p.m. on the East Beltline near Woodland Drive, according to the Kentwood Police Department. A 32-year-old man was crossing the Beltline on foot from east to west when a southbound sedan, driven by a 41-year-old Grand Rapids man, hit him.
Shortly after, police said the pedestrian was hit again by a dark-colored Ford F-150 pickup truck that fled the scene without stopping. Police have not located the truck.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene, officers said.
