MUSKEGON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Muskegon Township man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left a teenager injured.
Adam Blackburn, 35, was arrested Wednesday and is facing one count of leaving the scene of a serious injury accident in the Oct. 4 incident.
According to police, a 15-year-old girl was walking with her friends in the area of Hall Rd. and Brooks Rd. when she was hit by a pick-up truck driven by Blackburn.
After hitting the teen, police say Blackburn left the scene.
Initially, police didn’t know who hit the teen. But Wednesday morning, the Muskegon Township Police Department received an anonymous tip about a man in a truck that matched the description of the truck involved in the hit-and-run crash, authorities said.
An officer located the truck – a 1994 Ford Ranger – that had damage to the front and passenger side. The damage was consistent with evidence that investigators found at the crash scene, according to police.
When police began to question Blackburn – the owner of the truck – he halted the interview and invoked his Miranda rights.
Blackburn is being held at the Muskegon County jail on $25,000 bond.
As of Thursday morning, the teenage girl’s condition was unknown.
