Fenton Man Struck By Vehicle And Killed While Checking Mail

7/11/14 - A Fenton Township man was killed this week when he was struck by a passing vehicle as he retrieved his mail. The Genesee County Sheriff’s Department says 59-year-old Nicolai Bodnariuc, originally of Romania, was walking with a friend along Fenton Road between Thompson and Ray Roads just after 7pm on Wednesday. He crossed the street to get his mail while his friend went inside a nearby retailer. When he had his mail he turned to cross the street again, and witnesses report he stepped unknowingly into the path of a sedan traveling southbound. According to the Tri County Times, the Fenton Township Fire Department was on the scene quickly and began treating Bodnariuc, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. The 29-year-old driver of the sedan was also treated at the scene for head injuries before being transported to a hospital in Grand Blanc. Police are investigating the crash, but they do not believe speed or alcohol were factors. (TD)
