According to the Detroit News, Northfield township police were investigating whether alcohol contributed to the accident. The 61-year-old man driving the car which struck the DJ had not been drinking, but Jevon Hollywood had and he was talking on a cell phone as he walked on the road in the dark.
“We say goodbye to Jevon Hollywood today. We love him, miss him, and will never forget him. Right now our thoughts and prayers go out to Jevon’s many friends and his family,” said WDTW on its website, inviting listeners to post remembrances.
