CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Police are currently investigating a hit-and-run incident that resulted in the death of one individual.

The incident occurred around 2:05 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, Dec. 10, at Garfield Road near Eleanor Street.

Lt. Anthony Greene said a man died as a result of being struck by two separate vehicles.

“We believe one car struck the individual and kept on going, and then a second car ran him over and then stopped,” Greene said. “(The female driver of the second vehicle) got out of the car and called police.”

Greene said the second car’s impact with the victim was accidental, while the original vehicle is the one wanted by police for fleeing the scene.

The man, who died at the scene from multiple blunt force trauma, lived on Eleanor. Police made contact with his parents and brother shortly after the incident.

“What he was doing there, I don’t have a clue,” Greene said, “other than he was out for a stroll.”

Greene said no nearby businesses had surveillance cameras — which could have possibly captured the incident in real time. Police are sending evidence from the scene to a crime lab so scientists can examine it for any kind of lead.

Greene is also following tips from the public.

“I’m kind of hoping for a break, to be honest,” he said.

If anyone has any information related to the incident, they are asked to call Clinton Township Police at (586) 493-7894.
