A Kalamazoo man is dead after an accident at a gas station Sunday evening.

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says that around 7:15pm Sunday, a man was pumping gas at the Speedway in the 3900 block of S. Westnedge Ave, when a car collided with the man and the gas pump, starting a fire.

The victim was pulled out of harm’s way and taken to Bronson hospital, while the fire was quickly extinguished by fire crews. However, the victim, identified by the KDPS as 53-year-old Michael Seyoum, died as a result of his injuries.

At this time it’s not clear what caused the 74-year-old driver from Mattawan to collide with the victim, but police say that alcohol and drugs do not appear to be factors.

No one else was injured in the incident.
