Grand Traverse Co. Hit-and-Run Suspect Charged

The downstate man accused of being involved in a deadly hit-and-run in Grand Traverse County has now been charged.

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office say Daniel Castillo was driving with his brother Christopher back in July.

The sheriff’s office says Daniel hit Sham Suri as he was walking across U.S. 31, near 4 Mile Road.

The two then got out of the car and ran from the scene.

Suri died the next day in the hospital.

Daniel Castillo is charged with not stopping at the crash, and being a repeat offender.

Christopher is still on the run. He has an arrest warrant out for accessory after the fact.
