MT. CLEMENS (WWJ) – Authorities are looking for the public’s help to locate a driver wanted in a hit-and-run crash that injured a pedestrian.

According to Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham, it happened along northbound Gratiot Ave. near Park St. in Mount Clemens, just before midnight Tuesday.

Deputies responding to a call about someone hit by a car found a 28 year-old Detroit man lying injured on the ground in front of a closed business, Wickersham said.

The man was attended to by EMS at the scene and then taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of a head injury.

Wickersham said security video of the incident shows the victim was crossing northbound Gratiot from east to west when he was struck by a dark-colored vehicle while in the center lane. After striking the pedestrian, the driver continued northbound without stopping.

After reviewing the video as well as some car parts left at the scene, Wickersham said investigators believe the suspect vehicle is a 2001-2006 Chrysler Sebring, dark green in color. It will have damage to the front on the passenger-side and to the passenger-side, rear-view mirror.
