A Monroe County Sheriff Department Animal Control Officer has died in a traffic crash, and now investigators are looking for the other driver.

Michigan State Police were called to a crash at S. Custer Road and Raisinville Road in Monroe County at around 8:09 a.m. on June 4.

Troopers said the crash resulted in the death of animal control officers Darrian Young.

The suspect vehicle was allegedly seen driving recklessly in the area prior to the crash, according to investigators. It’s described as a black 2014 Dodge Caravan with no license plate. At some point prior to the fatal crash, the suspect vehicle sustained front end damage, troopers report.

Business owners in the area are being asked to review their surveillance footage to see if their cameras captured the suspect vehicle prior to the crash.

It was last seen in the area of Telegraph Road, south of M-50 to Dunbar Road. The suspect vehicle then allegedly ran a vehicle off the road on Laplaisance Road at E. Dunbar, before fleeing to I-75 and S. Otter Creek, MSP reports.

If you know anything, call Michigan State Police.
