Forty-year-old woman arrested in hit and run crash

ALPENA, Mich — A 40-year-old-woman was arrested for her involvement in a hit and run crash Tuesday afternoon in Alpena.

The accident happened at the corner of M-32 and Ripley, outside of Alpena Car Care around 12:30 p.m. The driver of a black Dodge Ram was approaching the intersection heading south, before losing control. Lt. Eric Hamp of the Alpena Police Department said on the scene,

“We determined that the driver of the full sized pick up truck ran off the road on Ninth Ave,, then crossed the street here and struck a vehicle that was parked in the parking lot of the Alpena Car Care Center, which was unoccupied.”

Before police arrived, the driver of the Dodge had already left the scene. Lt. Hamp says the driver of that pick up was the only person involved in the crash.

Alpena police Sgt. William Gohl later confirmed the suspect was found on foot, near the intersection of M-32 and Bagley St. around 2:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported as a result of the crash.
