OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Sheriff's deputies are again asking for help as they try to track down the driver from a deadly hit and run crash in Ottawa County.

It happened in Wright Township over the weekend.

Deputies say 24-year-old Travis Lee Ryke from Coopersville was walking on Arthur Street near 24th Avenue when he was struck by a car that took off.

An autopsy shows he died from multiple traumas.

Deputies say they have gotten some tips, but they still have no suspect vehicle description.

Anyone with information should call the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department or Silent Observer.

Meantime, family and friends will be paying their last respects Tuesday night before a planned funeral Wednesday at Throop Funeral Home in Coopersville.

The family has set up a page to help with expenses.
