The funeral for an 18-year-old Dakota High School student who was hit by a car last week will be March 29.
Neoosha Nelson was hit Tuesday morning on 21 Mile Road near La Roche Drive, according to a statement from the high school.
Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said a Toyota Prius that was being driven by a woman who had just dropped her own student off at the high school hit Nelson. He said the driver cooperated with the investigation.
Nelson was taken to an area hospital but died Thursday from her injuries.
Visitation is Monday, March 28, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Peace Funeral Home — 19530 W. Seven Mile Road in Detroit.
Her funeral will be the following day at the same funeral home at noon.
