Pickup Truck Driver Flees Fender Bender, Cops Find Body in Truck Bed

Police investigating a minor fender bender Thursday afternoon in Michigan unexpectedly found the body of a 62-year-old woman in the bed of a pickup truck involved in the crash.

Investigators said the truck rear-ended a car just before 2 p.m. in Roseville, and the driver jumped out and fled on foot. That person has not yet been found, but police said they know who he is and that he lives in the neighborhood, WDIV reported.

“Our Criminal Investigation Unit is out there right now, trying to piece it altogether. We expect to be here for the rest of the night,” Roseville Deputy Police Chief Mitchell Berlin said Thursday evening, according to the Macomb Daily.

The car involved in the crash also left the scene but stopped nearby. Police said they don’t believe that driver was involved with the body.
