Michigan State Police say they arrested an Illinois man after a car crash in Wexford County.

Police responded to a two car crash at the intersection of Mackinaw Trail and M-115 in Clam Lake Township Saturday around 7:30 P.M.

They say a 2020 GMC Sierra was traveling southbound on Mackinaw Trail, and did not stop for a Ford F-250 traveling east on M-115.

Police say the GMC driver and his passenger ran from the scene, but were later found hiding in some bushes not far from the crash site.

The driver of the GMC was arrested for operating a car while intoxicated.
