City Says Berkley Councilperson Kideckel Fled Accident Scene

(City of Berkley, Jan. 27, 2018)

Berkley, MI – In the early hours of January 1, 2018, Berkley Public Safety Officers responded to a reported vehicle accident that occurred in the area of Oakshire and Beverly, south of 12 Mile. It was reported that one of the drivers left the scene. Following an investigation of the accident, Public Safety Officers determined that Berkley City Councilman Alan H. Kideckel was at fault and had in fact left the scene.

Later the same morning, Mr. Kideckel came to the Public Safety Department to file an accident report. Mr. Kideckel has been cited with failing to yield to a traffic control device and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. Berkley Public Safety treated this matter as it would with any driver, and prepared a comprehensive report.

Mr. Kideckel was elected to the City Council in November 2011. Because Mr. Kideckel is a publicly elected official in Berkley, the City Attorney referred the prosecution of these citations to Royal Oak. This immediate decision ensured there was no favorable treatment (nor appearance thereof) by the criminal justice system.

At this time, the criminal justice process is ongoing and no final rulings have been made. Any further inquiries in this matter should be directed to Mr. Kideckel.
