GENOA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - No charges will be filed against a Livingston County EMS driver who struck and killed a man last year.

County Prosecutor William Vailliencourt made the announcement Tuesday, saying in a statement that the evidence in “these circumstances is insufficient to justify any criminal charges.”

According to a state police investigation, Patrick Thomas Billo was lying in or near the center lane of a road in Genoa Township when an ambulance struck him in the early morning hours of Nov. 18.

An autopsy indicated that the 49-year-old victim was “highly intoxicated” at the time. And Billo was wearing dark clothing when he was struck.

Vailliencourt says the ambulance driver thought “he hit trash or debris in the roadway.”

There were heavy winds with debris blowing across the roadway at the time.
