Authorities: Fight led up to woman being struck, killed on highway near Ludington

AMBER TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Authorities have identified a woman who was killed when she was hit by a vehicle while walking in the road near Ludington.

Cecilia Knowles, 25, died early Saturday morning after being hit while walking on US-10 just west of Dennis Road in Amber Township, just east of Ludington.

Authorities say Knowles was riding in a friend’s vehicle that was heading east on US-10 when she got into the argument with the driver and punched him in the face. The driver told deputies she got out of the vehicle in a Burger King parking lot around 2:30 a.m. and refused to get back in despite several attempts by the driver.

At 3:01 a.m., a driver called 911 after swerving to miss a woman walking in the road and being unable to convince her to get out of the road.

Minutes after a deputy was headed to the area, Knowles was hit and killed by another vehicle that wasn’t related to any of the previous events.
