Michigan State Police are looking for the driver of a four-door sedan who fled the scene of a personal-injury crash at westbound I-94 and Jackson Road in Ann Arbor.
The crash occurred at 5:01 p.m. when the driver's vehicle drifted out of his lane, then veered to the left to avoid a semi in the right lane, said Trooper Josh Reeber of the Ypsilanti Post of the Michigan State Police. The car hit the guardrail, then shot back across the highway and caused the semi to run over the front of the car.
A woman riding in the front passenger seat was taken by Huron Valley Ambulance to the University of Michigan Hospital, Reeber said. The extent of her injuries was not clear.
A 6-year-old child in the back seat did not appear to be injured but was taken to the hospital for observation.
The driver fled the scene on foot after the crash, Reeber said. Anyone with information about the man's whereabouts is asked to call state police at 248-482-1211, ext. 293.
The driver is described as Hispanic with short black hair and sideburns. He was wearing long pants and a blue long-sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up. He has a tattoo on the right shoulder.
The left lane of the freeway was closed after the crash, but was reopened by about 6 p.m.
