Timothy Charles Nixon hit and killed by car in Baltimore Township, Michigan.

January 4, 2014

A pedestrian was hit by a car and killed on snowy roads Saturday night.

It happened just after 11 p.m. on M-37 near Butler Road in Baltimore Township in Barry County, according to Michigan State Police.

The victim has been identified as Timothy Charles Nixon, 50, of Hastings. The driver was a 16-year-old from Hastings.

Before the crash, Barry Central Dispatch had received a call about a man in dark clothing walking in the road near the area of the collision, MSP said. It was only a minute later that dispatchers received a call about the crash that killed Nixon.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Roads were bad at the time due to the weather, MSP said -- they were slick and visibility was poor. Speed, alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors on the teen's part, MSP said.

Nixon's actions before the crash are under investigation.
