PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) - A Kalamazoo man is in a hospital after fleeing from a crash on a highway -- an incident that police say he caused.
It was 11:56 p.m. Sunday when the Portage Department of Public Safety responded to a wreck involving a pickup truck on eastbound Interstate 94, east of Oakland Drive.
The driver lost control, causing the vehicle to strike the side of a semi-truck's trailer, according to a news release.
The pickup truck then rolled over and came to rest upside down against the median barrier.
When officers arrived they learned the driver of the pickup truck ran from the scene. The 28-year-old Kalamazoo man was later located in a nearby neighborhood.
He suffered injuries in the crash and an ambulance took him to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo.
Alcohol may be a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation, police said.
The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.
Anyone with more information is asked to call the Portage Department of Public Safety at 269.329.4567 or Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
