Wyoming Public Safety investigates fatal car/pedestrian crash

Wyoming Public Safety Department blocks off northbound Byron Center Avenue at 52nd Street.On Saturday, September 24, 2016, at approximately 10:53 p.m., the Wyoming Department of Public Safety responded to the report of a serious vehicle traffic crash on 28th Street SW and S. Division Avenue. The crash occurred when a west bound vehicle driven by a 25 year old female from Grand Rapids struck a male pedestrian that ran south across 28th Street in front of her vehicle. The male was pronounced deceased at the scene by the medical examiner. The victim did not have identification on his person at the time of the crash.


The deceased victim has since been identified as Marcos Perez-Ramerez, age 32. Unfortunately, the information found may indicate that both of his parents and a sibling are deceased. The Wyoming Department of Public Safety has been unable to locate any other family members with the limited information available at this time. The public is being asked to assist if they know Mr. Perez-Ramerez or any other potential family members and to call the Wyoming Department of Public Safety with that information.


Anyone with information is asked to contact the Wyoming Department of Public Safety at 616-530-7300 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
