A 33-year-old woman has been charged in the death of a man who was struck by a car, flung over an 8-foot fence and landed on the field at the old Tiger Stadium site in Corktown.
Shayla D. Tucker, of Detroit, was charged Friday with reckless driving causing death, a crime punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s office said Tucker was speeding west on Michigan Avenue and struck another car at 1 a.m. on April 2, causing the other vehicle to slam into 35-year-old Paul Pesola.
“The impact caused the victim to be thrown over an eight foot fence into the former Tiger Stadium grounds,” the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.
At the time, Tucker was taken to the hospital for injuries she sustained in the crash.
Police didn’t see the Pesola’s body because the field was dark, and the body was at least 20 feet from the accident.
A passerby spotted the body of the Pelkie resident at about 6 a.m.
An orange cone was placed where the body was found.
