BIRCH RUN, MI (WNEM) -

The driver in a hit-and-run accident turned himself in to Birch Run Police Sunday morning. State Police said four people were injured in the crash that happened Saturday just before 10 p.m.

The accident happened at Birch Run Road between Gera and Block roads. Police said two vehicles were involved in a fender-bender when a pickup barreled into them. The pickup driver ran away despite rolling his vehicle.

Investigators tell TV5 they will talk to the prosecutor about possible charges for the hit-and-run driver.

Rescue crews called a medical helicopter to the scene. One person was air-lifted with serious injuries. The other three were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Birch Run Road was temporarily closed while police investigated the scene and the area was cleaned up.

Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
