Tyler County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call on Friday from the Tyler County E-911 that an individual had been struck by a vehicle on state Route 18, near A. I. Boreman Elementary School.

Upon arriving on the scene officers investigated the accident and confirmed that a male individual was fatally injured. After receiving statements from witnesses at the scene, it was determined to be a hit and run accident. The vehicle involved in the accident was later located in Middlebourne and Zachary A. Coen of 228 Steele Street, Middlebourne, was arrested and charged with hit and run resulting in death.

He was arraigned in Tyler County Magistrate Court.

The Sheriff’s Office is continuing their investigation of the accident. They were assisted at the scene by the Middlebourne EMS and Shirley VFD.

While the Tyler County Sheriff’s Office is not releasing the name of the victim, it is widely reported on Facebook that it was Kevin “Zach” Dunham.

An obituary for Dunham at the Nelson Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Gaylord, Mich., lists a death notice for Kevin “Zach” Dunham, 22, of Wolverine, Mich.

The obituary says he passed away on Friday in Middlebourne.

Arrangements are still pending.
