Detroit police say the driver of a hit-and-run vehicle stopped just long along to pull the body of a pedestrian off the hood of his car and dump it in an alley before speeding away Tuesday evening.

The pedestrian, who police believe was in his 50s, was crossing the street in the 6600 block of Michigan Avenue around 9:35 p.m. on the city’s west side when he was hit, according to Sgt. Michael Woody.

The male driver and his four passengers were in a red Cavalier-type vehicle, Woody said.

“They struck him so hard that he landed on the hood, then the windshield,” Woody said. “They drove for a block before pulling into an alley. The driver got out, pulled the victim off the hood and fled the scene.”

Woody said police are continuing to canvass the area and are looking for any witnesses or possible video of the accident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police at 313-596-1616.
