    This happened infront of a Denny's. Alot of people walk from the hotels on the corner of Sag. and Canal and Cross infront of Denny's where this happened. But I wouldnt doubt that since it was like 11pm that the person who hit them {esp. only a block from the Sheriff's Station} was drinking when they hit and left him to die.

    I would not be surprised if this person was not crossing in a crosswalk. That seems to be the norm around Lansing.
