A 25 year old Ann Arbor man was killed in a car accident during the early hours of September 13, 2013 at I94 and Wagner road in Scio Township. Dillon Orion-Dorje Ptaszek was the son of the Washtenaw County undersheriff. He was traveling westbound on I94 when the vehicle he was driving went off the road for unknown reasons. It is believed that the car hit a construction light generator. It then flipped over several times and caught on fire. Ptaszek was found dead at the scene. Plaszek was alone in the vehicle at the time of the crash and there are no reports of other cars being involved.
The crash is currently being investigated by Michigan State Police Troopers from the Brighton post. Further information will not be available until after the autopsy is complete.
Ptaszek was a graduate of Ypsilanti High School and graduated with honors from the University of New England where he earned a degree in marine biology. Some of his passions included music, scuba diving, and skate boarding.
Memorial visitation is being held on September 16, 2013 from 1:00pm to 8:00pm. Memorial services will be held on September 17, 2013 at 11:00am. The family is requesting donations be made in Dillon’s honor to either an AIDs research or National Resources charity in lieu of flowers.
