Semitrailer driver charged after US Steel worker dies in trucking accident near Detroit


ECORSE, Michigan — A semitrailer driver has been charged with manslaughter after authorities say he ran over a U.S. Steel employee at the Great Lakes Works Cold Mill Shipping near Detroit.

Forty-one-year-old Heather Warren of Inkster was killed Saturday after she was struck by a semitrailer as it backed up at the facility in Ecorse.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says that 48-year-old Miho Saljic of Sterling Heights was arraigned Wednesday in Ecorse District Court. He's free on bond and returns to court for a probable-cause hearing May 5.

Saljic is a driver for ALCO Transportation. No one answered the company's phone after business hours Wednesday, and a person who answered Saljic's home phone hung up when asked for comment.
