Motorist tells police at scene 'I might have done something' hours after bicyclist is struck by a vehicle
A 74-year-old man is in stable condition with a lower body injury after he was struck Wednesday by a vehicle on Clark Road near Chandler Road in DeWitt Township.
Township Police Chief Mike Gute told News 10 late Thursday morning police have interviewed another man who may have struck the bicyclist with his truck.
Gute said the man with the truck spoke to police at the scene about two hours after the bicyclist was hit and told them "I may have done something."
Gute declined to reveal details about the conversation the man had with police and what prompted him to drive his truck to the scene two hours after the other man was injured.
Gute said township police may have their investigation complete by the end of Thursday and haven't determined yet if they will recommend for the Clinton County Prosecutor's Office to file charges.
"It doesn't sound like it was intentional," Gute said when asked why the bicyclist was struck by a vehicle.
The man who drove his truck to the scene and spoke to police has been cooperative and passed a breathalyzer test when he was interviewed at a nearby police station.
The man is back home in the Bath Township area, Gute said.
News 10 was at the scene of the accident Wednesday following reports the bicyclist was hit around 12:30 p.m.
Police said at the time the man was walking his bike westbound along Clark when a motorist drove by in the same direction, struck him with their vehicle and left the scene.
