PORTAGE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police say a man running from a traffic stop on I-94 jumped into the path of oncoming traffic and was killed.
It happened around 11 p.m. Sunday in Portage.
Portage Police were pulling over a driver on the eastbound side of the freeway at the Portage Road exit. The driver apparently tried to drive away and ran into a barrier. Investigators say the man began running, jumped over a wall into the westbound lanes, and was hit by a vehicle and killed.
The name of the man is not being released, but police say he was a 30-year-old Portage resident.
The incident closed westbound I-94 for three hours.
Michigan State Police troopers from the Paw Paw post have taken over the investigation.
