State Police Searching for Passenger Who Ran from Traffic Stop

Police are still looking for the passenger of a car they say ran from a traffic stop over the weekend in Cadillac.

The driver of the car died at the hospital of an apparent overdose. Police say he took a deadly dose of illegal narcotics during his arrest.

Cadillac police say it started when they pulled over the car on Saturday morning for driving without headlights.

The driver admitted to drinking and driving before speeding away.

A short chase ended on laurel street when police say the car crashed into a retaining wall, parked car and a tree.

While the driver was arrested and died at the hospital, police still can’t find the passenger of the car.

State police have now taken over the investigation.
