Suicide by truck – Man intentionally drove his vehicle into a semi

A Michigan man intentionally drove his vehicle into a truck this week in an attempt to commit suicide.

The Oakland Country Sheriff’s Department said the incident occurred at 10:52 pm on Wednesday, July 15 in Rochester Hill, Michigan in a commercial parking lot.

The unnamed man reportedly accelerated his 2000 gray Pontiac Bonneville through the parking lot at a “high rate of speed” and drove his vehicle into a parked 2004 Kenworth truck.

Fortunately, the truck was unoccupied at the time of the accident.

The man had to be extricated from his car. The man told first responders that he was trying to kill himself. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries, where he later died.
