BLOOMFIELD TWP. (WWJ) – Police are looking for assistance in identifying the victim of a deadly pedestrian crash on Woodward Avenue in Bloomfield Township.

The accident happened around 5:40 a.m. Friday on northbound Woodward just north of Square Lake Road.

Police say the victim, a 30- to 40-year-old white female, was apparently crossing the road when she was struck by a Dodge van. She was declared dead at the scene.

Police say the woman has blond hair, blue eyes, is 5-foot-8 and weighs 176 pounds. She also has a number of tattoos, including one on her right shoulder that reads “Tears of a Clown,” large wing tattoos on her back and two tattoos on her left hand. Anyone with information is asked to contact Bloomfield Township police at 248-433-7755.

The driver, a 61-year-old Hazel Park woman, stopped at the scene and was questioned by police.

Police say alcohol and drugs do not appear to be contributing factors.

“It’s still all under investigation, not sure yet on anything,” Auburn Hills Police Sgt. Richard Leonard told WWJ’s Charlie Langton.

The northbound lanes of Woodward were closed for several hours as police investigated, but have since reopened.
