DETROIT — One man has been killed and two other pedestrians injured after they were struck by a pickup truck at an auto display event in Detroit’s Midtown.

A 73-year-old man from South Lyon died Friday morning in a hospital after the Thursday afternoon crash.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says the pickup driver drove onto the wrong side of the street as the pedestrians were crossing.

A woman and man — both 65 — from Milford were injured.

Prosecutors say 42-year-old Deandre Simmons of Inkster is expected to be arraigned Saturday on driving with a suspended license causing death, reckless driving causing death, operating a vehicle under the influence causing death and other charges.
