STURGIS TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- State Police have released the name of the pedestrian who was struck and killed Sunday night as he was walking along Bogen Road by South Centerville Road near his home.

Dead is 22-year-old Johnny Wood.

State police say the driver of the SUV that struck him, a 60-year-old from Sturgis claimed he did not see him in the dark because he was reportedly wearing dark clothing and walking on the edge of the pavement.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor will decide if charges should be pursued, after they receive the accident report.
