Man climbs off Detroit bus, critically injured in hit-and-run by passing car

Detroit man seriously injured after getting off the DDOT bus

A Detroit man sits on a hospital ventilator after being hit by a passing car on 7 mile just moments after getting off a DDOT bus.

A Detroit man’s family asked to report after a man was seriously injured moments after getting off a bus in Detroit.

Otis Monger was just off work as a security guard and took the DDOT bus east at 7 mile on Wednesday morning.

It was 12:30 p.m. and the video shows him getting out of the car near Cameron and apparently speeding across the street. But just as he was crossing he was hit by a passing car or truck that drove on and thought he was dead in the middle of the street.

“I just want the person to come forward,” said his sister. “They took him to the hospital. He had to have an operation straight away. He’s not responding right now. He can’t breathe on his own because he’s damaged his brain.”

She said Otis lived alone, was quiet, and enjoyed his job and family.

The law is clear – a hit-and-run is a serious crime, and at the moment all she was told was that the car is a possibly silver Porsche.

His sister said they just want the driver to come up front.
