According to the Lenawee County Sheriff's Department, Roald Storen, 83, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident at the intersection of Gorman Road and Lyons Highway.

Mr. Storen was southbound on Lyons Highway when his car was hit by a vehicle driven by Eric Whitehouse, 18, of Lyons, Ohio, who was uninjured.
