LASALLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. A 37-year-old southeast Michigan man has died after being struck by a pickup truck as he walked along a roadway in Monroe County.

Steinman, of LaSalle Township, was hit by the pickup that was driven by a 23-year-old Monroe man. Steinman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The pickup's driver was not hurt. Deputies say neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in the accident.
