MOUNT CLEMENS — Macomb County Sheriff detectives are still investigating a hit and run incident that occurred in Mount Clemens Aug. 31.

According to one witness, the victim, a 53-year-old woman from Mount Clemens, was crossing Dickinson near Third Street at approximately 1:40 a.m. when she was struck by a dark-colored sedan.

Lt. John Michalke said the victim rolled up onto the hood of the vehicle and then rolled off onto the street.

The witness told investigators that the driver of the sedan stopped and got out of his vehicle, seemingly aware that he had struck the woman. The man told the one witness that he was going to go and “call 911,” at which time he got back into his car and fled the scene northeast on Gibbs Street.

The man is described as white with a “fuzzy” beard. He is in his late 20’s or early 30’s and he was wearing a black shirt, black shorts and black shoes. The vehicle he was driving was a dark-colored sedan, possibly a 2009 or 2010 model year. The car may be burgundy or black and it should have some front-end damage, Michalke said.

The victim suffered head and leg injuries and she remains in an area hospital in stable condition.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Macomb County Sheriff’s Detective Chris Fraser at (586) 307-9358.
