According to Fox News, Ryan Tsatsos died after being struck by a car that was going 80 mph on a side street, near Central Michigan University. The impact of the speeding car sent Ryan flying into a ditch on the side of the road. Ryan reportedly pushed his female friend out of the way when she heard the car coming, saving her life.
“The outpouring of love and support is so touching,” Mrs. Tsatsos, Ryan’s mother, told Fox. “To know that people care and that he touched so many people’s lives.” Mr. Tsatsos said “the same people [who] were here when Darryl died are back here, some as early as 3:30 in the morning, within an hour of us hearing the news,” Fox reported.
Darryl was Ryan’s older brother. The 19-year-old tragically passed in a three-car crash. Supposedly, he was trying to escape from police who were trying to pull Darryl over for speeding. The public still remains unclear on the facts of the case as it remains under investigation in Macomb County.
Ryan and Darryl were the only children of Paul and Julie Tsatsos.
These tragic car accident related deaths are not uncommon. More than 270,000 people are hit by cars every year while walking on the side of roads and streets. This number only makes up 22% of all deaths caused by car accidents. Safety while walking on the road is just as important as being safe behind the wheel of a car.
