The driver of that car — described as a dark-colored sedan, possibly a Chevy Malibu — did not stop at the scene, continuing westbound under the I-94 overpass. The car will likely have some front-end damage.
As seen on video from a pole-mounted traffic camera that partially captured the incident, a good Samaritan got out of her car to help the victim.READ MORE: Flint Public Schools Staying Virtual Indefinitely Due To Large Amount Of Positive COVID-19 Cases
