GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Nearly two months after a teen was hit while she was riding her bicycle, a suspect has turned himself in.
Katie Hamel was riding her bike along Three Mile Road in Grand Rapids Township on June 17 when she was hit from behind by a car. The driver left the scene of the crash.
Hamel, who was 15 at the time, suffered serious injuries. She wore a neck brace on her 16th birthday.
She was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Thursday, a suspect turned himself into the Kent County Sheriff's Department and was later released on bond. The suspect has not been charged in the case yet, so authorities are withholding his name.
Arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 28.
