PIERSON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - A man was cited after police said he crashed his pickup truck, that became stuck in front of a residence, and fled the scene.
The Chevrolet S-10 became stuck "atop a mailbox post and a road sign," according to a news release from the Montcalm County Sheriff's Office.
A nearby resident near the intersection of Kimball and Daggett roads in Pierson Township was awakened around 4:30 a.m. Sunday after hearing the driver spinning the vehicle's tires in an attempt to get the pickup truck unstuck.
The resident noticed the male driver was possibly under the influence of alcohol, police said.
The resident didn't call police to report the crash until 8:46 a.m., police said.
A sheriff's deputy arrived at the scene northwest of Sand Lake but the driver of the crashed truck was not there.
Authorities were able to track down the driver, 27-year-old Jacob Isiah-Wilson Jordan, at his Sand Lake home.
He was cited for failing to report an accident and speeding.
Alcohol may have been a factor in the accident, police said.
