FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – A driver has turned herself in after a 33-year-old man was struck by a car and killed this weekend in Oakland County.

The crash happened around 7:55 a.m. Saturday (Oct. 15) on 12 Mile Road near Balmoral Way in Farmington Hills.

When officers got to the scene, they found a 33-year-old Pontiac man lying in the grass. He was pronounced dead.

Police said a white Chevrolet Equinox left the roadway, struck the man on the shoulder, and fled the scene. They released information about the crash to the public, and a driver turned herself in Sunday morning, according to authorities.

The 68-year-old Southfield woman is cooperating with investigators. Her Equinox has been impounded.
