The Livingston County Sheriff’s office has located the vehicle suspected of being involved in a hit-and-run crash that injured a 17-year-old Howell resident a week ago.

 Livingston County Sheriff Mike Murphy said in addition to locating the truck, detectives have developed a person of interest. “The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the community for all their help with the tips they provided,” Murphy said in a press release.

 On Sunday, July 26, at approximately 9:30 p.m., deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to Bull Run Road near Munsell Road for a hit and run crash involving a bicycle and a white Ford pick-up truck.

 The preliminary investigation revealed that the teen bicyclist was southbound on Bull Road when he was struck by what witnesses said was a newer model white Ford F150 crew cab pick-up. Witnesses said the pick-up had damage to the front passenger head light area.

 After witnesses spoke to the driver of the pick-up, it left the scene southbound on Bull Run Road. 

 The teen was transported to the University of Michigan Hospital with life threatening injuries by Livingston County Ambulance.

 Bull Run Road was closed for approximately three hours during the investigation. Deputies were assisted at the scene by Livingston County Ambulance and the Fowlerville Area Fire Department.

 This crash remains under investigation by the Livingston County Major Crash Team.
