A White Lake Township man died the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 12 from injuries he received after being thrown from his motorcycle and hit by passing vehicles in Hartland Township.
Christopher Muncy, 53, was traveling south along the right lane of US-23 when he lost control at about 10 p.m. just north of Crouse Road. He was ejected from his 2006 Honda motorcycle, according to a Livingston County Sheriff’s Department press release.
Muncy landed in the left southbound lane, where he was struck by several vehicles.
“It appears that the first vehicle that struck Muncy after he was ejected from the motorcycle stopped at the scene and then left prior to the arrival of emergency personnel,” the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department release states.
Investigators say the vehicle that fled the scene appears to be a grayish or light blue Mercury or older model Grand Marquis. The car would have significant front end damage and be missing the silver Mercury grill. A female was seen exiting the vehicle during the initial stop.
Authorities ask anyone with information about the incident or the vehicle that left the scene to contact Deputy Brad Neff with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Safety Bureau at 517-540-7984, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
