ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (FOX 2) - A 74-year-old man has died after he was involved in a suspected distracted driving crash last week in Rochester Hills. Suk-Joon Ham was in the back seat of a Honda Accord when the car was hit while turning left onto southbound Adams from westbound Avon on Sept. 21. Authorities believe the at-fault driver, a 30-year-old Rochester Hills woman driving a Jeep Cherokee, was distracted by her phone and ran a red light.  "Anything that takes your eyes off the road is considered distracted driving," said Oakland County Sheriff's Office Undersheriff Curtis Childs.
