State police at 3 o’clock established identity of a Monday
night traffic victim as Fred Fuseek, 1115 Knapp St., Flint.
An unidentified and poorly dressed man was almost instantly killed at 9:30 Monday night on Ecorse Road one and a half miles east of Ypsilanti when he ran in front of a car driven by Joseph Jarzynka, Rockwood.
Mr. Jarzynka said that the man had hailed him for a ride and then ran in front of his car forcing him to pull to the left side of the road. He was unable to avoid the accident and could not understand why the man ran into the path of his machine.
The dead man suffered a badly broken right leg, a broken left wrist and a number of bruises on his body and one on his right temple. He wore a dark gray plaid mackinaw. He is about 45 years old, five feet six inches tall and weights about 155 pounds.
The body was taken to a local undertaking establishment and finger prints were made this morning by Sergeant Lyle Merse of the Michigan State Police.
