A family in Macomb Township is mourning the loss of their son, killed in a hit-and-run early Sunday morning in Mount Pleasant.
As reported by the Macomb Daily, Ryan Tsatsos, 17, a freshman at Central Michigan University was killed while walking with friends to his residence hall in the rain on a dark two-lane road near the campus of Central Michigan University.
The driver hit Tsatsos and drove off.
Second Son To die In Automobile Accident
The tragedy comes just three months after Tsatsos’ brother, Darryl, was killed in an automobile accident in Macomb Township.
Police are seeking the public’s help in locating the hit-and-run driver.
“No arrests have been made yet in the death of Ryan Tsatsos,” Michigan State Police Sgt. Kim Vetter said Monday. “We are following up on tips. We are aware that the family lost their other son three months ago. This is a terribly tragic situation.”
According to the Michigan State Police, the vehicle is described as an older four-door that is dark in color.
A gofundme fundraiser has been set up to help Ryan’s family with funeral expenses. As of Monday morning, more than 160 people had contributed $8,600 toward a goal of $10,000.
