A 56-year-old Commerce Township resident was transported to William Beaumont Hospital after being struck by a minivan near the intersection of W. Sixth Street and S. Washington.

He is currently being treated for head and back injuries and is in stable

The driver of the minivan, a 32-year-old female Bloomfield Township resident, was released from the scene pending further investigation. Neither alcohol nor weather conditions were a factor in this accident.
