Detroit police are investigating a deadly hit-and-run crash that happened late Tuesday.

Investigators say the driver of a red Chevy Cavalier was speeding westbound on Michigan Avenue near Martin, and hit a pedestrian.

The man was knocked onto the hood and stayed on the vehicle for about a block. Then, police say, the driver dumped the body behind a building on Michigan Avenue and drove off. 

Police believe there were five people in the Cavalier at the time of the accident. They are looking for the five suspects.
