Michigan State Police troopers from Alpena arrested a 24 year-old Mio man last week, following an investigation into a hit and run accident.

The two-vehicle accident occurred last Wednesday on M-33 in Comins Township.

Troopers were sent to the crash and learned the driver of one of the vehicles had left the scene.  With assistance from Oscoda County deputies, the suspect vehicle was located a short distance away.

The subsequent investigation ended with the arrest of a 24 year-old Mio man for operating a vehicle while impaired and failure to stop and identify at the scene of an auto accident.

Troopers made a total of five arrests for drunk driving last week.  They also picked up three people for possession of narcotics and were on scene of 17 traffic crashes.

The Alpena post responded to 69 calls for service over the week.
