Man fleeing police arraigned in fatal Detroit crash

DETROIT (AP) – A 21-year-old Detroit man has been charged in a fatal crash that occurred after police attempted to stop the vehicle he was driving for speeding.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Jordan Strawter was arraigned Saturday in Detroit’s 36th District Court on reckless driving causing death, driving with license suspended/revoked/denied causing death, and fleeing and eluding causing death.

Police attempted to stop the speeding vehicle just after midnight Thursday on the city’s far northwest side. The vehicle later struck another vehicle, killing its 32-year-old driver, Kendle McCallum.

The prosecutor’s office says McCallum was pronounced dead at the scene. Strawter’s probable cause conference has been scheduled for May 9.
