SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WNEM) -

Authorities are hoping to learn more details by reconstructing a deadly hit-and-run crash.

The crash happened about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, June 3 on Ormond Road south of French Lane in Springfield Township.

Investigators said 63-year-old Michael Bailey was driving a 2000 Harley Davidson southbound on Ormond Road when he lost control of the motorcycle while trying to avoid hitting a deer.

Bailey was thrown from the motorcycle when he crashed with the deer and ended up in the road. Investigators said he was lying on the road when a vehicle traveling southbound ran over his body.

The vehicle then fled the scene, police said.

Officials are now looking for a white or silver vehicle with minor damage to the driver’s side of the front.

A crash reconstruction team is working to identify the make and model of the vehicle and will release more details when the information is available.
