Police: Driver Deliberately Runs Over, Kills Teen 3-21-2011

The Tuscola County Sheriff’s Department said a 16-year-old is dead after he was intentionally run over by a vehicle early Sunday morning.
According to a news release issued by the sheriff’s department, Zachary Harp, of Caro, was struck by a car driven by a 17-year-old Unionville teen and dragged nearly one block sometime before 4 a.m.
The Bay City Times reported the vehicle used in the altercation is a 1996 Pontiac Bonneville.
Investigators said an altercation occurred earlier during a party at a home on the 6000 block of Elizabeth Street in Gagetown between the two teens.
Witnesses told responding officers the Unionville teen ran over Harp with his car and dragged his body down the road. Deputies said when another person ran to the Harp’s aid, the vehicle came around again and struck them, causing minor injuries to the other person.
The suspect and other party-goers fled the scene when police arrived.

Harp, who attended Owendale-Gagetown Junior-Senior High School as a freshman, was transported by helicopter to Flint Hurley Hospital where he died.
The suspect was later tracked down and taken into custody. He will be charged with murder, the release states.
The incident remains under investigation. An autopsy is also expected on the victim.
Authorities are not saying if any of the teens had been drinking at the party.
“They’re hoping that the kid who did this to him gets prosecuted to the fullest extent,” said neighbor Samantha Culhane, whose sister is friends with the Harp family.
Classmates wore blue shirts and red bandannas in remembrance of Harp. Grief councilors were also on hand to assist students and staff.
Anyone who has information is asked to call the Tuscola County Sheriff's Office at 989-673-8161.
