A Benton Harbor man has died after a minivan versus pedestrian accident Wednesday night. 40-year old Justin Devereaux, who has a Lansing address but lives in the area, suffered a head injury after being struck this week while trying to walk across M-139 in Benton Township. Girlfriend Sandra Brennand says the two were walking from the old Roadway Inn Hotel to the Marathon station near Ferguson Drive. Joe Howell of St. Joseph, who struck Devereaux, was not ticketed or injured in the accident. Brennand claims Devereaux was drunk, but a toxicology report has yet to confirm that. State and Benton Township police are continuing to investigate.
