ALPINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A Comstock Park resident is dead after getting hit by a car on Saturday night, just south of Alpine Church Rd.

42-year-old Vincent Alighire was crossing Alpine Ave. on foot when a 66-year-old driver hit him, according to Michigan State Police. His family has been notified.

That driver has cooperated fully with the investigation.

A combination of low-lighting conditions, dark clothing, and a lack of a crosswalk are all considered factors in the crash.
