A man was in custody and police were still trying to determine a victim’s identity after a fatal hit-and-run collision involving a car and a bicycle near 14 Mile and Ryan on Labor Day.
According to Police Commissioner Jere Green, the man — who reportedly carried no identification — was struck on a bicycle on Ryan at Hillcrest, south of 14 Mile Road, at about 8:34 p.m. on Sept. 3.
Green said the suspect, a 47-year-old man who remained in police custody on Sept. 4, was traveling north on Ryan in a black Saturn Ion when he apparently struck the victim.
“The bicycle he (the victim) was riding ended up in the southbound lane, off of Kensington,” Green said. “He (the driver) continued and then we got some calls about his vehicle — a lot of front-end damage, and a cracked windshield.”
Warren patrol officers later apprehended the man on foot north of 14 Mile in Sterling Heights. The ensuing investigation led police to the vehicle.
“He had blood all over him,” Green said of the suspect. “He obviously had been in an accident of some kind.”
The victim was reportedly dead at the scene.
The suspect was taken into custody and held as the investigation continued. Green said Macomb County prosecutors would review any potential charges.
A blood sample was taken from the suspect and would be used to determine if alcohol or drugs played a role.
Anyone with information about the incident can reach Warren police at (586) 574-4700.
