Police have recovered a vehicle believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed two men well-known among many Detroit Tigers fans.
Detroit police say the 2003 white Cadillac towed Tuesday isn't the primary car in the crash near Eastern Market on the city's east side.
James Van Horn and Michael Alston were killed about 2:30 a.m. Saturday while crossing Gratiot at Russell. Their bodies were found in the roadway.
Police still are seeking a dark-colored Dodge Avenger.
Van Horn and Alston were well-known outside Comerica Park during Tigers baseball games.
The 66-year-old Van Horn would chant "Eat `em up, Tigers" and collect spare change from baseball fans.
The 55-year-old Alston was known as "Dreadlock Mike" because of his hair. He moved around downtown in a wheelchair.
