Guy killed by hearse driven by friend.


Our heart goes out to this guy, to be sure.

It went like this: Over in Macomb Township early yesterday, 22-year-old Samuel York had his hearse-driving pal drop him off at a party. Moments later, York darted into the path of the same 1999 Chevrolet hearse as it drove off along 21 Mile, in front of the Hometown Mobile Home Park. ClickOnDetroit goes on to report that York’s friends say he was a depressed guy. ... Yow. RIP, Mr. York. Truly.
