PARK TWP, Mich. — Deputies were called to a hit-and-run crash on 159th Ave. just after 2 a.m. Saturday morning.

The homeowner was awakened by a series of loud crashes and the sound of a revving engine.

Once they looked outside, they saw the suspect's car turn around in the owner's driveway and head south again on 159th Ave.
