MANISTEE COUNTY, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan construction worker was killed and another injured when they were struck by a car in a construction zone on U.S. 31 in Manistee County.

The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon in the Village of Bear Lake.

Manistee County sheriff’s deputies say a 20-year-old worker was standing off road with a 23-year-old worker when the car struck them. The 20-year-old was killed.

According to authorities, witnesses said the vehicle was traveling at a high speed when it crossed the center line, left the road and struck the workers.

The 23-year-old victim was flown to Munson Medical Center in Traverse City and was last known to be in critical condition.

Authorities say the 66-year-old driver, a woman from Bear Lake, was not injured. She was not taken into custody.
