When Leelanau County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene of a rollover crash, they found the driver had fled and evidence that he had been injured and armed with a handgun.
A witness reported the rollover involving a 2011 GMC pickup on Elm Valley Road near Hilltop Road in Bingham Township at just before 10pm Saturday. The truck rolled several times.
Around the truck, responders found items ejected from the truck that indicated the man had been carrying a handgun.
Police searched for the man and eventually state police spotted him run into a wooded area nearby. He was eventually tracked down at a residence on East Bingham Road.
The 43-year-old, who lives nearby, was taken to Munson Medical Center and then to jail on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, drunk driving, and leaving the scene of an injury accident.
