SHELBY TOWNSHIP — A man is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle during a hit-and-run on 25 Mile Road, west of Hayes Road, at approximately 7:15 p.m. April 2.

According to police, a 48-year-old man from Macomb Township was riding a bicycle on 25 Mile Road when he was struck by a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup fled the scene without stopping and continued down 25 Mile Road, police said.

The victim sustained life-threatening injuries, according to police. As of April 7, police said the victim was in critical but stable condition at a hospital.

The suspect vehicle was described as a gray or silver 2006 to 2008 Dodge Ram quad cab pickup, and witnesses last saw it traveling eastbound on 25 Mile Road at the Hayes Road roundabout. 

According to police, the truck had right front-end damage and was missing the right headlight assembly.

The Shelby Township police are in possession of video that shows the vehicle moments before the incident.

Since the hit-and-run, police have located a suspect and have made progress in the investigation.

“We have identified the suspect and impounded his vehicle. The investigation is still ongoing, but charges will be sought in the near future,” Shelby Township Police Detective Sgt. Terry Hogan said in an email.

Police are not releasing more information until further review can be done.

“We are not releasing video or other information at this time,” said Hogan.

Hogan said a witness to the hit-and-run called 911 and was able to get the bicyclist help.
