Searching for driver in Tuscola County hit-and-run

A suspect in a hit-and-run that left a woman seriously injured has been found dead.

Tuscola County Deputies were called to Bray and Barnes Roads on May 5 at around 6:42 p.m. where they found two vehicles overturned near the intersection.

Investigators said 60-year-old Patricia Hatfield from Mount Morris was southbound on Bray and was hit by a driver in a Chevy Silverado that had failed to yield at the intersection.

Witnesses said the driver of the Silverado ran into a field following the accident.

Deputies later identified Christopher Fredenburg as a person of interest. On May 11, deputies said Fredenburg was found dead behind a home with suspected self-inflicted wounds.
