Battle Creek Police work to identify hit-and-run driver
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Battle Creek Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver that has left a 21-year-old Battle Creek man hospitalized with severe injuries.
It happened back on August 21, just before 3:00 a.m.
Police responded to a report of an accident on Jackson Street near 20th Street in Battle Creek.
They say two motorcycles were traveling eastbound on Jackson when a vehicle attempted to turn left from westbound Jackson to southbound 20th Street.
One motorcycle made it through, but the driver wound up pulling out in front of the other, driven by 21-year-old Christopher Miranda.
Miranda struck the passenger side, and was severely injured.
The vehicle was described as a dark colored, medium sized sedan, possibly a Chrysler product. It stopped briefly, but then fled southbound on 20th Street with what should be some significant damage to the passenger side.
Miranda has survived, but is still undergoing treatment for what Battle Creek Police call "extensive, severe injuries."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Battle Creek Police or Silent Observer.
