MSP: Driver with suspended license admits role in hit-and-run
BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -
State police asked for the public's help last week to assist them in tracking down a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run where one person was injured at Mackinaw and Linwood roads.
The hit-and-run occurred on May 4 and the victim received minor injuries.
Troopers said an anonymous call alerted the MSP post near Freeland with information on the suspected driver, including her address.
Authorities were able to find the vehicle at a residence on W. Johnson Street in Saginaw. The vehicle was impounded by police and when the driver came home, she saw that the vehicle was missing from the driveway. She then called troopers and according to Trooper James Willing, admitted to being involved in the accident.
The 36-year-old woman spoke to authorities about how the crash occurred, the passenger's name and why she fled from the scene. Police said she has had an expired and suspended driver's license since 2006.
The Bay County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing the police report for any possible criminal charges.
