A woman's body was found in the road in Harrison Township early Wednesday morning, according to police.

The Macomb County Sheriff's Office were investigating a fatal crash at Jefferson and Shook Roads around 5:15 a.m.

After reviewing surveillance video from the nearby Ruth Motel, detectives learned the woman was struck and killed by a vehicle. According to detectives, the woman's boyfriend also spent the night before at the motel.

Family members have set up a GoFundMe account for funeral costs.

However, family members say the woman was partying with her boss and not her boyfriend.

Witnesses told 7 Action News, the man and woman had a heated argument and the motel owner kicked the woman out around 4 a.m. She was seen sitting at the property's edge and discovered in the road about an hour later. 

Police are working to notify the woman's family before releasing her identity.
