Authorities say the pedestrians were in their mid-20s. They say one died at the scene and the other at a hospital. Their names are being withheld until families are notified.

    We get great coverage about incidents that happen in Detroit, but there is limited (newspaper) coverage about the closure on M-60 and the fatality.
