A 53-year-old White Lake man died at the scene of a traffic crash Wednesday after he lost control his motorcycle and was ejected into traffic, according to a press release from the Livingston County Sheriff's Department.
Police say that Christopher Muncy was driving his 2006 Honda motorcycle on U.S. 23, just north of Crouse Road in Hartland, around 10 p.m. on Sept. 12 when he lost control of the motorcycle and was hit by several cars in the left lane of southbound U.S. 23, according to the report. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The first vehicle that struck Muncy initially stopped, according to the report, but left prior to emergency vehicles arriving on scene.
Police are asking for help identifying the missing vehicle which based on parts found on the scene appears to be a grayish or light blue Mercury that was possibly an older model Grand Marquis. The vehicle would have significant front end damage and may be missing the silver Mercury grill, according to the report. Witnesses say a female was seen exiting the vehicle when it initially stopped at the scene.
Anyone with information about the vehicle is asked to contact Crime Stoppers or Deputy Brad Neff with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Safety Bureau at 517-540-7984.
Deputies were assisted at the scene by personnel with the Michigan State Police Brighton Post, Hartland /Deerfield Fire Authority and Livingston County EMS.
