Authorities didn't have any additional information to release to the public Monday about the man who died after being found by a passing motorcyclist on West Liberty near Ann Arbor early Friday morning.

Washtenaw County Sheriff Sgt. Geoff Fox said he didn't have any further information about the incident. Derrick Jackson, director of community engagement for the sheriff's office, was not available for comment.

Responders were called to the 4400 block of West Liberty in Scio Township at 2:08 a.m. Friday after receiving reports of a man struck by a vehicle, officials said.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene at 2:17 a.m., according to Joyce Williams of Huron Valley Ambulance.

Investigators are trying to determine if alcohol was a factor. On Friday, Jackson said deputies previously had responded to several calls reporting the same man being intoxicated and lying in the roadway.

Perfect headline/story fit. I almost didn't read it, but having done so wish to add my thumbs up to Chelsea the Intern who, with the tender guidance of your staff and the readers, may soon perfect her style to what may well become known as The Chelsea Standard.

To send Clark Kent off on an extended vacation. Things always seem to perk up when he's away from his desk. ;-)

If they dumped the Intern I will boycott this place and start a "save Chelsea the Intern" Face Book page.

I hope the Intern did not get dumped. She wrote the original article and let's just say, people were not kind to her.............
