Southfield man's body found after driver thought they hit deer on Telegraph

A driver reported hitting a deer early Sunday in Southfield, but it was really a man, police said.

The driver said they hit a deer on northbound Telegraph Road just south of Civic Center Drive around 1:30 a.m. When police arrived, they found 68-year-old Donald Hautau's body.

Investigators said it appears Hautau may have been hit by another vehicle before the driver who called police hit him.
