A 25-year-old Traverse City man was arrested early Tuesday morning on several charges following a car crash.

A resident alerted authorities to hearing sounds from an accident in the area of County Road 633 and Fryzelka Road at 3am. Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office deputies responded to investigate and found evidence of a traffic crash and fresh damage to a guard rail. As the investigation was taking place, the suspect returned to the crash scene. Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver fled southbound on County Road 633. He then crashed his vehicle near the intersection of M-37 in Wexford County.

The driver was taken into custody without further incident. While there were no reported injuries, the suspect's vehicle received damage during both crashes. The driver was arrested on multiple charges including fleeing and eluding, operating while intoxicated, leaving the scene of a crash, and possession of marijuana.
